What are the symptoms?
If all stuffy sit in the bathroom with him with the shower turned on hot and let him breathe the steam

This and also saline drops. There isn't much you can give or should give to babies when they're sick.

Aw poor guy hope he feels better soon! I would call the pedi too to see if they have any ideas.

Saline and booger sucker if he's stuffed up. When he's sleeping elevate him in his crib so his head is a little higher. Humidifier.

all you can do is run a cool mist humidifier

Vapor rub and that Johnsons Vapor bath. My daughter (14mo) has a cold also and there still isn't much I can do. Let him sleep as much as he wants and put vapor rub on his chest and back when you can. The hot steamed shower room works well too. If you have a humidifier (we don't) then try that.

My daughter has a runny nose and a cough that keeps her restless at night.

Only give them infants Tylenol and a warm bath to soothe them.

Walmart carries an all natural cold syrup for kids 12 months and older..the main ingredient is honey and vitamin C (or maybe B?) and all the other ingredients are natural no "medicine" in it but its supposed to boost their immune system while they are sick to help them fight it off faster :)
