    Default Help for 6.5 mo with a cold

    i realise this isn't exactly an emergency but my 6.5 month old has a cold. He is now in the running nose, sneezy phase, with a bit of a cough. Is there any over the counter product I can give him to relieve these symptoms?

    All you can do is give Panadol. Baby Vicks may help or a vaporiser. Make sure to keep up their liquid intake. Can also use fess little noses to clear the nose.

    Pretty much all that pp said.

    I also take DS into the shower and the steam helps unblock his nose.

    Vapouriser was excellent for us when DD had a cold, as was slightly tilting her bed up (pop a towel or pillow under the mattress).
