  • sit in a hot steamy bath room for 20 mins and suck out his nose, try some baby vapor rub on his feet at night! a cool mist humidifier works well! good luck!

  • Personally, I try to let my kids ride these kinds of things out, remind myself that they are building an immune system, and only give medication if I have to so they can sleep at night...
