My nine month old started sneezing today and now he has cough, runny nose and sore throat. He is not sleeping or drinking his bottle and all he does is cry. What should I do?

lots of cuddling and snuggling, try a humidifier in his room at night and elevate the head of his bed. you can also try baby vicks or if you don't like the chemicals try adding a few drops of eucalyptus oil to the humidifier. otherwise just wait it out I know it sucks, all three of my kids are sick and my youngest is two months. the cough might last up to two months but you should begin to notice an improvement within two weeks. good luck!
