the doctor wont do much for a cold. you can do home remedies! for the stuffy nose use a bulb syringe to help flush out the mucous. you can also use saline drops. expect your son to fight you! most babies hate both lol. Invest in a cool mist humidifier. if you cant, steaming up your bathroom with a hot shower is just as effective. if he sleeps in a crib, you can elevate the mattress on one end with a folded towel or blanket. if he is really congested, you can get childrens vicks vapor rub and apply a small amt to his feet, if you nurse apply a small amt to your chest. but any medicine is last resort. if he has a high fever you can use a half eye dropper of childrens tyenol.
