When they are that little, it really is a sin. I would ask the pediatrican b/c you really have to be careful with what they can take, if anything at all. I usually put a humidifier on, which seems to help with the coughing/throat. I've also run the hot water in the shower stall. Once the steam gets going, I've brought the baby in the shower with me. The steam helps clears the nose (but my baby was 6 months old, 1 week old may be too much). Sometimes letting her stay in the car seat also help b/c she's kept somewhat upright, and any fluid built-up in the nose/throat tend to be less. Good luck...make sure you drink lots of water and take care of yourself as well.
