Try a humidifier

How long has he had it? Have you tried a humidifier, sitting in the bathroom while a hot shower is running?

If he has had it for awhile, have you been to the doctor?

I am asking the same questions the above posters did - how long has he had? Any other symptoms? If it's been couple of days try using a cool mist humidifier, steam shower, baby vicks on the feet, prop him on a small pillow to help sleep. If it's longer than 3-4 days, I would take him to the doctor.

How is he feeling now?

I agree with all the listed advice. I did all these things with my kids too, then I took them to their pedi if they didn't get better.

Quoting WILDCATGAL78:

We have a humidifier in their room and we put vicks on the soles of their feet, with socks. That helps so much with the cough.
