Definitely no medicine! My son is just getting over one now, and what worked were baby saline nasal drop a few times a day. We would remove mucus with the round bulb we got at the hospital when he was born, and also we put a humidifier in his room at night to help him decongest. Basically, let it run its course but keep a watch for fever developing later because that could be a sign of something else coming, A mild fever at the beginning is normal though.The cold and cough only will go away on its own.

I had used a wedge for sleeping, and during the day I used baby vapor rub, and the vaporizer. This helped a lot. If the congestion was really bad, we sat in the bathroom with the shower running hot water for steam for about 20 minutes. I also used a nose sucker thing to get out all of the yucky stuff. Hope your little one feels better soon! It is so sad to see them sick :(

MY DAUGHTERS DOCTOR DOESN'T ADVISE VICK OR ANYTHING PETROLEUM BASED BECAUSE KIDS CAN ABSORB THE TOXINS EASILY. WE USE A HUMIDITIER WITH SOME LIQUID UN-MEDICATED OILS AND ELEVATE HER HEAD WHEN SHE SLEEPS. ALSO SOME PEDIALYTE TO PREVENT DEHYDRATION IF SHES RUNNING A FEVER OR NOSE IS REALLY RUNNY. YOU CAN EVEN MIX THE UN-FLAVORED PEDIALYTE WITH CEREAL.
