  • Have you tried saline spray and a nose aspirator. that and at night, baby Vick's on the neck and chest. or a bath with Johnson and johnson's vapor bath.

  • I totally agree with nwdeserangel on this one. Since he is still small, you cant give him meds so go with the nasal spray, you dont have to spray it, you can do it like drops, use a cool mist humidifier and use a small amount of vicks, id only use it under clothes so that your LO wont touch it then put it hands in his mouth, as far as the vapor bath, ive used it and it doesnt really seem to work unless the water is hot, much to hot for my kids. Talk to the pediatrician to make sure he doesnt have a sinus infection, yellow or geen discharge could be a sign of that. Hope he feels better!
