  • Try using a humidifier. Also, you can use a nasal bulb syringe to suction mucus. I have used Baby Vicks on my kids, that works pretty well. And your baby is old enough for you to use that menthol wash from Johnsons. Also, I use one of those plug-in things that puts mentholated stuff in the air. As for the fever, I have noticed that with my kids their fevers go up while they are sleeping... no idea why though. You can give generic Tylenol or Motrin if you are concerned. Hope the LO feels better soon!
