My son has a really bad cold

My son just turned 1 month yesterday and he caught my cold and it's getting worse. You can feel it in his back when he breathes. He is so cranky because he is sick. I feel so bad. What can I do until I can call the pediatrician tomorrow? Is it true a baby shouldn't have a cool mist humidifier until they are 6 months old because they shouldn't have that much moisture? Should I use it tonight if not? It's the graco one?
