If he has Bronchitis then he needs an antibiotic ASAP it is caused by a bacteria. Keep him sitting upright t(head elevated) to drain the mucus. Don't lay him flat to sleep. Let him sleep in a baby swing if necessary. You can use Ocean saline nasal spray to help drain his sinuses. DON"T squirt it in, just gently tip his head back & drip it in then sit him up & wipe what drains out. He NEEDS to see another Pediatrician ASAP!
