  • I don't think there is much you can do, except just keep kleenex on hand and wipe his nose. If it is a cold, there is no cure. You just wait for it to go away.

  • Cool mist humidifier where baby sleeps. Gently wipe the nose when needed and make sure that baby is getting enough fluids.

    My doctor's sage advice on colds: they last 7-10 days untreated. Treat them and they last 7-10 days.

  • My pharmacist says that , and i agree, you can use normal saline mist in each nostril. This helps for awhile. It is baby friendly.
