I found a Vick's nightlight that just plugs into the wall and you place a little pad in it. It worked factastically when our daughter was all congested. She also had a decongesting bath before bedtime too. We us Johnson's Decongesting Bath liquid.

You can buy aroma babybath that helps to sooth and clear out nose and chest. There is one that has menthol and Eucyliptus in it.

Run a really hot shower and sit in the bathroom with the baby for about 15 minutes. It'll help loosen up stuff. You can use a nasal aspirator to GENTLY suction out mucus. Also a warm compress of mint and lavender on the chest will help relieve stuffiness and help the baby sleep.

Run  a cool mist humidifier at night and prop up one end of the crib mattress by placing a pillow or blanket under the mattress, the elevation really helps
