  • runny nose: use blue bulb syringe, use baby saline nose drops if needed. Cool mist humidifier. Tylenol if he seems uncomfortable, but that could mask a fever and you would just want to know if he has a fever. Get him to drink well. Remember a cold will last at least a week and the runny nose a little longer since LOs can't blow their noses yet.
