  • I also reccomend the vicks on the feet with socks over (not sure how it works but it does) a humidifier and lots of liquids. You can also put a pillow under his mattress to elevate the end of the bed where his head is. If he starts coughing or seems really congested you can turn the hot water on in the shower and shut the door so it gets steamy and just sit in the bathroom to let him breath in the warm moist air to help. I hope your little one feels better soon

  • Rub his chest with some Vicks put some Vick on his feet and cover them with socks take him into a hot steam shower run a vaporizer when he sleeps. Having a sick little one isn't fun. Just make sure he drinks plenty of fluids and this too shall lass. Hugs!

  • Store brand baby motrin at night and baby tylenol store brand during the day. Motrin makes my son sleep like a rock through the night. Raise his head while he sleeps so his sinuses drain. If he won't sleep on a pillow, fold a thick comforter in half and then where he puts his head, fold it underneath again. That will raise his head and its safer than a pillow. Hope he feels better soon. My son got a vaccination when he was under one to prevent ear infections. I forget what it was called but he has never had one at all. Ask your Dr. about it.
