  • go to the health food store and see what options they have for homeopathic (all natural) cough medicines for children under 2. Other then that give him a teaspoon of honey. And you could try the Old wives tale of Children's Vick's vapor rub on the bottom of the feet. I don't know if it works or not though.

  • When my DD was really sick I would sleep in a chair with her that way she was sitting up and it's a lot easier to breathe that way.
