It sounds like you are basically doing all you can do. My daughter had a cold off and on all fall and winter, and the only thing the dr. said we could do is the saline drops, aspirate her nose, and vaporizer. She didn't have a cough the whole time, but she did have one for awhile and I could hear her coughing during the night, which sounded so bad and hurt me to hear. But I could tell it didn't bother her too much - she would still laugh and play. I would say keep doing what you are doing - nasal drops, aspirate, and vaporizer and if there is still no progress in a week I would go back to the dr.
