  • Not much you can do medicine wise. For congestion use a humidifier, saline and nasal bulb. Keep an eye out for a fever. I use baby vicks but my DD wasn't that young so ask the pharmacist/doctor.

  • Call his doctor. He/she needs to see him to determine if he has just a cold or something worse. You don't want to wait until its midnight and he's screaming with a fever and there's nothing you can do.
