  • bring him into the bathroom with the shower going on hot, the steam will go along way for comfort, this is great at night. also do not lie him flat, maybe sleep in the swing to help with the stuffiness. Think about what you would like..for instance you would not want to lie flat on your back if you were stuffy, right? also a vaporizer helps and also boil big pots pf water to keep the air moist. get baby vicks vapo rub and rub it on his feet then put on white cotton socks

  • Humidifier, saline drops in his nose for two weeks. The humidifier and drops won't cure it, but may help him be more comfortable.

  • For the stuffy nose, put him in the bathroom when someone is taking a shower, all the steam from the shower will open up his lungs and nose. Try not to take him outside because it can get worse. If you have to go out, cover him especially his nose and mouth. Also, I have vick's for babies. It is not too strong and helps with the cough. Good luck, hope you little one gets better soon.
