My baby as a cold, now what?

My ds has his first cold, where he got it, I have no idea. It started randomly last night, it could be because he is teething. (he's almost 9 months, and he's been teething for awhile now)
I have no idea how to make it better other then to syringe his boogers like crazy and turn on the humidifier.

  • Not much you can give a baby that young. You can give a few drops of nasal saline then syringe his boogies. That should help clear him out. The humidifier should help too. Good luck!
