I just had a baby 6 months ago, 10 years after having my 3rd child. My 6 month old had a horrible head cold for a little over a week and then seemed better and then 4 days later got it again and this time with chest congestion. Back when my other 3 kids were babies we could use baby cold medication. Now there isn't any thing like that for babies. I'm doing all I know to do, cool mist humidifier, saline and nasal aspiration, chest rub for babies, and warm baths to soothe him. This cold is just hanging on. Does anyone have any other suggestions? Thanks so much:)

Have you taken the baby to the doctor? I'm assuming so with how long it's been going on, but just wanted to double check.

Sorry... other than that you are doing all I know.
