Hi Kayla
It could be that she has an allergy for animals, dust, housemites or food that causes the stuffiness. She could also be in an environment (like a playgroup or creche) where she has contact with a lot of germs. In the early years they get more upper airway infections until they develop antibodies against the most common germs. You could try to give her an immune booster like viral choice c syrup.
