"How should I treat my 3 month old's cold?"

My 3 month old woke up yesterday with a crusty nose, watery eyes and has been sneezing alot. He doesn't have a fever but, he is irritable and unable to sleep very long because of the congestion. Are there any natural ways to treat these symptoms?

Yes, you can use saline drops in his nose to help the snot to be a little more liquidy so it can drain...they sell them in the pharmacy (Little Noses is the brand I use). Also, you can feed him in the bathroom while you have a hot shower running so that he'll inhale the steam, that's always helped my LO. Plus, you can run a cool mist humidifier in his room to help with the congestion and help him to sleep in a slightly propped up position (I roll up a towel and put is under one end of the crib mattress so there's a slight incline). That's about all I can think of! Good luck, hope he feels better soon!
