Being a mom to three an having worked in the medical field for so long , i can tell you that as everyone knows, there is no cure for the common cold. Even If you do take him to see a dr. All they will do is probably give him cough medicine and acetaminophen. Yes I know it's hard to watch your baby be sick but just let his body take care of the virus itself. Just watch for any signs of fever that can't be controlled with medication or a reall high fever and make sure his cough does not become worse or he has dificultu breathing. If he is too young then maybe cough medicine will also be out of the question. You can try over the counter medication for yourself. If it makes you feel better just take him to an urgent care clinic, you don't need appointment.
