  • Use the saline nose drops-it helps. Also, a humidifier.

  • yup what they said. in the steamy bathroom beat on his back to break up the mucus. if you don't have baby vicks, or want something natural tea tree oil or euculyptus oil works well. Cut the potency by mixing it w/ some lotion.

  • Everything everyone else said, plus:

    Stuff a rolled up towel or very flat pillow under his crib mattress to raise it up to a slight angle.
    This way he's not lying flat on his back.
