  • take him/her into the bathroom, turn the shower on so that it fills the room with steam, and sit with baby. That will help a bit. Also, getting a humidifier. If you're really worried, definately make a drs appointment, because at that age, you really cannot give any medicines.

  • Use a humidifier. Also, use saline spray in the nose. Even though there is no nose congestion, the saline will help to coat the passages and relieve a cough. Also, try to keep your baby upright as much as possible.
