Hey.... Do not fear there are things you can try....
Calpol do a nasal spray for babies from birth which is a saline solution( basically salt and water ) salt fights infection and cleans, this will not hurt your baby , defiantly worth a go !
Sounds like your little man may have projectile vomiting which often shoots through the nose , milk may be building up in his nose! And causing some blocking. I suggest you speak to your doctor about this to see if your little an has colic or reflux! Is he sick with every bottle rather than just a burp?? ( obviously I'm not a doctor but it's just a suggestion) speak to your go if worried!
Also there is a baby Vicks you can try called snuffle baby, not sure if he can use it from 10 weeks though, double check ,
you can buy little pumps where you blow the snot through your babies nose , using a little tube which is non invasive and safe for small babies ,have a look online I thing tommee tippee do one in a nail clipper set.
you can buy both items from boots for a small fee.
Kind regards and good luck let me know how you get on xx
