My little one who is 14 month old has alot of congestion in his nose it does run but you can see its hard for him to breathe he has a horriable cough as well. He is on his second antiobotic plus a neublizer. He is up every half hour to a hour at night for the past 2 weeks. I have a cool mist humidifer but does not seem to be doing anything i have used the vapo rub as well as the saline and nasal aspirator. Please help

Have you tried having them sleep propped up some. I know some are hard to keep upright cause they like to turn over and such. I would assume since you have antibiotics you've gone to the doctor, what did they tell you?

It almost sounds like you might be making it too moist. That's really the only thing i can think of here. You're keeping him really wet up there. Maybe try laying off some of that and see if it thickens up some and lets him get it out of his system.
