for a cough you can try honey (seeing as your son is over 1 year old) It is a natural cough suppressant. Peppermint tea (I like it strong and as warm as they will take it) can help with a sore throat. Broth soup (mama was right chicken noodle works) is also helpful. As others have mentioned, elevate the bed a little, humidifier, and push fluids (keeps the mucus runny). If the cough is keeping him up? If so I'd take him in and see if the doc can prescribe anything. Mine gave us a cough medicine that we used once to calm the cough. My son got a good night sleep (first for us all in like 3 days) and was much better for the rest.
