Keep an eye on your child's temperature. Pretty much anything over 99 to 100 F, call your pediatricians office. I know it varies depending on the child's age, but you didn't give that here so....

Keep bay comfortable, elevate the head of the bed ( no pillows for them yet), a cool mist humidifier/vaporizer, warm/steamy baths/showers, keep nose clear (bulb thing), distract as best you can, and give lots of fluids (breast or formula).

I'm sorry there really isn't a lot we can do for them at this age other than to just give them lots of snuggles.
