I use a humidifier in her room, baby vicks on her chest (but have also heard the bottom of the feet then cover with socks), and tylenol for what my pediatrician calls "general misery" lol. She also feels alot better after a nice warm steamy shower too b/c it opens up her nose, and loosens it up so we can get everything out with the bulb syringe.

Also offer lots of fluids, one thing that always cheers my daughter up is popsicles.

my daughters are always getting them depending on your babies age i use vicks on my 3yr old n for my 21month old i boil some water and mix a teaspoon of vicks n put it in her room and calpol tends to relax them so that the vicks has a chance to work.
