    Help Is there anything I can do?

    Advertisements
    Hayden woke up this morning coughing and he is getting a cold. I have the humidifer going and I am suctioning his nose. Other than baby vapor rub, is there anything else I can do to help him? I called his doctor and they told me nothing is recommended for his age as far as medication goes. I was told to keep his head elevated too.

    Anything else I can do? TIA.

    You're doing pretty much everything you safely can for him. The humidifier is the major thing.

    Turn on the shower - get it good and hot and steamy in the bathroom and then hold him in the hot steamy room (keep the shower running!) for five minutes or so. Repeat as necessary.

    This always helpped my little ones more than the humidifer in the room.

    Saline nose spray/drops. Our ped didn't like the bulb because it could inflame and irritate nasal tissue, sometimes creating more discomfort.
