    I just re read your post and saw that he's wheezing. It's difficult to know whether you mean just nasal noises because of his stuffed nose, or actual wheezing due to his airways collapsing when he's breathing out. If it is the latter then you should consider seeing a doctor as it could be something more serious.

    his wheezing sounds to be coming from his blocked nose - after sucking phlem out the wheezing has reduced so it should theoretically not be his airways (which we're grateful for). suck, suck, suck is all I'm doing now...his feedings are kind of messed cause he can't breathe properly so he drinks more but less at each feeding...ai ya! :(

    I think if he is wheezing you should take him to the dr. He could have bronchiolitis. Better on the safe side, especially with very young babies. Even if the dr tells you just to do what you are already doing, it will give you peace of mind.
