Will has a terrible cold! Extremely runny nose, watery eyes, coughing sneezing etc. I know I can give him acetomenophen but what is the other stuff I can rotate it with?

Ibuprofen and also suction as much as you can. Also run a humidifier if you have one if hes congested. Poor baby. I hope he feels better.

I would call your pedi and ask. All dr's say different dosing and how frequent to give to them. I know you can rotate it with advil. The dr wrote a rx for Lilli for zyrtec for Lilli's cold. I guess to dry it up? Other than that...there's really no other medicine.

We were told to give Brynlee Infant Claritin. We give her 3/4 teaspoon once in the mornings.

We've only ever done Tylenol when baby gets a fever from the cold. Otherwise we do lukewarm baths, hanging around a humidifier (or sit in the bathroom with the shower running hot) to clear out clogged nose, plenty of liquids, and cuddles.

Hope he's feeling better soon!
Thank you claire1979 for my cute new siggy!

Yep, nothing for any child under 2 except pain reliever/fever reducer and saline for the nose.

Poor baby! I hope he's feeling better now!
