Have you got any lemongrass essential oil or baby balsam you can stick in the humidifier? These have antibacterial properties that will help kill the germs and will also help him to breathe while he sleeps. Also we put a pillow under the matress to raise one end so that her head was raise and helped the phlem from blocking her nose so she could breathe easier as she slept. A little cranberry juice during the day can help - plenty of vit C in it. Hope that helps :)

I would bring him to the doctor. When my daughter was 2 month old she had a really bad cough and a fever i brought her to the emergency room and they admitted her because he had bronchialitis and she was in the hospital for a week and i had to give her an inhaler every 2-3 hours or when the cough got really bad.
