    Keep the nose clear as Laura mentioned and you should be fine! Any concerns arise call the doctor!

      Hi, so how old is your baby? Have you sat in the bathroom with the shower running of hot water so your baby can inhale the steam to keep lungs clear & it relaxes both of you with the sound if running water.
      I would use a dehumidifier also, we bought one by vicks & you can add ointment into the machine or you can buy strips that go in the machine. It ran so quietly i'd highly recommend it.
      Oldie but it works also rubbing vicks baby rub onto your baby's feet then put socks on, use a little under nosem if need small amounts can be applied to their back & chests.
      Hope baby is feeling better soon

          So he slept ok I had cleared his nose out and put vicks on the bottom of his feet and everything woke up this morning and he has a fever!! This is so not what I need right now I just had my gall bladder out a week ago and its highly possible they will take out my appendix soon as well!!! A sick baby on top of it is not fun. But this is baby Justins first real cold!!! Almost a year and no flu, rsv, swine flu, or anything so I think I am doing great! He has been exposed to almost all really serious illnesses this flu season! Thankfully his flu shot is working!

                Viral is the worst because there is nothing they can do ... but have you monitor! But glad it is not something serious!
