Try using a baby cold cream like vicks for baby,rub it on chest,back and feet. There are also great cold baths for babys just ask at a pharmacy.

Not even honey that is pasteurized. Which some people say is safe, as opposed to raw honey. NO HONEY.

NO! Botulism is very real and is found in honey. After a certain age your body can naturally fight the organism off, but at such a young age it is not recommended.

If you are looking to help with congestion, I suggest using a cool mist humidifier where he sleeps. Also, you can bring him into the bathroom when you are taking a hot shower. The steam will help loosen the congestion. Good luck momma! But NO honey!
