I agree with Marette with the shower idea, it's what we did with our son when he was an infant and had a cold. You can do it for up to 15 minutes and several times a day. Also be sure to use the nose bulb to suck out the snot throughout the day. I hope your little guy feels better soon!

There is no medicine you can give to a new born, But something that i found to be helpful was to turn the shower on as hot as it can go than close the bathroom door with you guys i there the steam will help break the mucas up...or get a humidfier...it works tthe same way
