2) You can give your infant acetaminophen or ibuprofen over the age of three months. Although ibuprofen is not the preferred analgesic, it's often more effective on bringing down a fever and its anti-inflammatory properties mean it will also soothe a sore throat which will make it easier to feed.
3) If your baby is having trouble feeding with a stuffy nose, hold or sit him as upright as possible during feeds. You can also try nasal saline drops, which may help unblock his nose. The drops are available at most pharmacies and should be applied 15 minutes before a feeding.
4) Inhaling steam may help loosen your baby's blocked airways and relieve his cough. One safe option is to take your baby into the bathroom with you, close the door, and run a hot shower. You will need to change him into dry clothes afterward.
These are simple remedies for alleviating symptoms that will be effective in many cases. However, if your baby begins to experience any of the more serious symptoms listed above, do not hesitate to get your baby to a hospital.
