When he sleeps try to also prop him up so he is in a semi-sitting position, If in a crib, put a rolled towel under the head of the mattress that way he is 'propped'. When my daughter was sick I put her in bed with me so I could keep an eye on her. I propped her on a pillow and then put rolled receiving blankets on either side of her so she would stay on the pillow, I even put a pillow under her legs so she wouldnt slide off of the propped pillow. Good luck!

vicks makes a baby rub but you have to be careful useing it you can only put a little bit on the cheast an back you cant put it under there nose, they also have vapor bath now with that it says on the back if you or anyone in your family as asthma to ask a doctor before using, an you can not use both of those at the same time, an for the vapor bath it say one capful for a baby tub you gotta be careful you dont put to much in an not enough water because it can burn there skin an i dont mean like a 1st degree burn like a vapor burn which would not bother an adult but a new baby that really doesnt no whats going on it can hurt him, good luck hope he feels better soon

Also there's a vapor bubble bath that johnson and johnson makes. You can start using it when babies are 3 months try taking him a warm bath in that.

Poor little guy! Vick's makes a BabyRub that is safe to use on baby's three months and older. It really helps my daughter with congestion and stuffiness. Hope he gets rid of it soon!

Try a humidifier. I put a little Vicks Vapo Steam in ours and it helps a ton. Also if he is really congested sit with him in the bathroom with the door closed and the shower running with just hot water. The steam will help loosen him up.
