my ds woke up this morning with a cough and head congestion. we took him to the er and they say everythings fine but he is still having trouble. he is so congested that he is having trouble eating and breathing. the dr. says that he is coughing because he's so congested. they say not to use saline drops because at this age if they get in his lungs it can cause infection. he doesn't have a fever but it seems like his cough is getting worse. his ped. isn't open until monday. does anyone have any suggestions or ways to clear his congestion/coughing?please help!

Hang in there mom. If you think he can still not breath bring him in to the ER again ,always listen to your gut! You know what is best. I would keep him upright do not lay him straight down.
