Vicks on the chest and feet (with socks on), plenty of fluids, humidifier at night/during naps, keep the nose clear of snot/boogers. My 14 month old has a bad cold, too. :( We have a nebulizer at home, so our doc also told us to give him breathing treatments with saline twice a day.
I do this also but we use Ibuprofin. It seems to work better for the little ones here.
Quoting MommyO2-6631:Vicks on the feet. And if he is really fussy maybe a dose of tylenol. I always get achey when i have a cold. That's usually what makes me feel so bad. Run a humidifier or go in the bathroom with a hot shower running
I hope baby is feeling better
