My son has his first cold and I am looking for advice

He has a stuffy nose that has lasted about 10 days now and he has been fussy ever since. Is that typical? Any advice from experienced moms?

  • hook up a humidifier or go to the bathroom, run the shower on hot and let the room steam up and sit there for a while. prop his bed up with a mattress on the end where he sleeps.

  • instead of putting baby vicks on our son, we got the small vicks humidifier (from walmart-$20.00) and hook it up in the room.

  • Do all of the above, it is normal, they get really frustrated and mad with the stuffy nose.
