My daughter had the same thing and it was croup, but there isn't much you can do for that.
I wouldn't give cough medicine because he is too little. A cool mist humidifier is effective and just make sure he drinks a lot.

I would also suggest the humidifier and or running a hot shower and taking him in the bathroom to breathe in the steam.
