  • Nothing this young. As long as he doesn't have a high fever or difficulty breathing, your doctor will have you wait it out. My firstborn was SUPER sick for over a month, but they won't recommend meds for a baby that young - unless your baby needs hospitalized.

  • saline drops and an bulb syringe. Don't give you infant OTC meds without speaking to your Dr

  • I wouldn't give any meds at all. Saline drops and the bulb syringe.
