go to the bathroom and turn the hot setting of your shower, creating steam around the room. Stay there with your child for about 10 minutes; He will sleep better. You can also put just a bit of vicks vapor on the sole of his feet too. Even thought my mom said she use to put us little bit of vicks in our chest and in the back of our back, I won't recommended for you 4 months old, but when it get 1 1/2 yrs. old yes.

If you don't have a humidifier, BUY ONE! Also, you can tilt one side of the crib up at a 30-45 degree angle (we put a pile of magazines under two of the legs) and put his head at the tilted side. Other than those two things, there really isn't anything else. Poor babies, they have it so rough.
