  • Close your bathroom door and run a HOT shower. You will sweat to death, but the steam from the shower will help him breath easier. You guys can sit on the floor and play. I finally bought a Vicks steamer. I just pour the vicks liquid in there with some water and it steams up the room. I put it in the living room during the day, and the bedroom at night. It's nice. Just make sure the baby doesnt go around it, b/c the steam is hot coming out! But it works!

  • i would take him to the doctor, i'm a worry wart and the wheezing would worry me a bit. for a cough, i put baby vapor rub on my little guys chest.

  • Saline and a nose sucker thingy, the steam from the shower would be great, and probably a little calming. If he doesn't get any better within the next few days, I would take him to the doctor, to make sure that he doesn't have some type of infection (sinus, bronchitis). Give him a warm bath, that always makes my boys feel better. Let him sleep as much as he wants, and lots of cuddles! Good Luck!

  • See the Dr and use a humidifier and Baby Vapo Rub.
