How can I help my congested baby to nurse?

Nurse In An Upright Position

If you are breastfeeding and your baby is congested, it can help to allow him/her to nurse in an upright position...such as sitting on your lap facing you. This allows for better sinus drainage, easier breathing, and the baby can obtain milk easier.

This is a really good tip. My baby showed me this on his own as a newborn. He didn't want to eat lying down when congested and latched on sitting up. It made all the difference!
