    Stick his head in the shower! Well the steam lol alternating steam and cool air is a wonderful way to ease a cough...my son gets croup easily and when we notice the begining of the cough we start that and it tends to help....

    Is he snotty too? I used to sit in the bathroom and run the shower on hot to steam them. Helps loosen stuff up. Fever? Give infant Tylenol. Kids get sick. You'll get used to it ;) good luck!

    Humidifier,sitting on your lap in the bathroom while a running a warm shower, baby vicks rub. If however it gets worse, or baby can't eat because of it, consider an immediate care/ ER. RSV has been bad this year, and its not worth it to take risks with an infant that young.

    Yes he is snotty but no fever, I'm pretty sure he is getting sick of me checking. Thanks :)

    Kinda sounds like whooping cough...it is a seal like barking cough and can cause hospitalization...it is super scary!
