what i found that works is put a bowl of how water with vicks in it under neath his bed about half an hour before he falls asleep that should help him breath eaiser and if the calpol is not working stop for a day or so and see how he gets on

At 4 months, I would not give him anything but Tylenol.  Although, I don't know what Calpol is.  I don't know where you are from, but RSV is pretty popular around here this time of year.  I would watch him closely...and keep him comfortable.  How long has he had a temp?  If its been a few days, I would call the doctor just based on his age.

i would stop giving it unless he develops a temperature as calpol wont do anything for his cold his immune system needs to fight the cold off itself of he could be prone to colds later on.

i am a pretty anti medication person but when my son who is 3 months was sick andi gave him infant Tylenol i only gave it until i saw any little sign of him getting better. generally the medicines arent solving the problem just masking it so the baby doesnt feel them. so if he seems to be getting better then odds are he is and try not giving it to him. obviously if his fever spikes again ignore everything i just said and put him back on
