  • If you can, elevate one side of the crib. Get a cool mist humidifier or sit in the bathroom with him with the shower on hot.

  • The only meds that my son's DO every recommended were the Triaminics, but you would need to contact the doctor to get proper dosages. I also think that Motrin has a better affect than Tylenol when it comes to sore throats.
