you can run a steam bath, basically a hot shower but just sit with him in the bathroom, not in the tub. put a wedge under his mattress to help him sleep slightly elevated. many people swear by putting vapor-rub on a babies feet then putting socks on over it but i've never actually tried it. my baby was about 3m when she got her first cold. aside from vapor-rub, these other things were all doctor-recommended for me. also, keep suctioning out the mucus. unfortunately, at this age all you can really do is try to make him comfortable until the cold passes on it's own. do speak with his pediatrician, who can give you specific recommendations based on your son's health and needs.
