Answer: Your baby’s cold will go away on its own. But there are a few things you can do to ease his discomfort: Make sure your baby gets plenty of rest.Encourage your baby to take extra breast or bottle feeds. If your baby is formula-fed or on solids he can have water too. This will keep him hydrated and bring down his fever, if he has one.Your baby will be too young to blow his own nose. So help him to breathe more easily by wiping his nose for him. You can also dab a little petroleum jelly on to the outside of your baby's nostrils to reduce any irritation.If your baby is having trouble feeding because of a stuffy nose, nasal saline drops may help to unblock his nose. You can buy these from your pharmacy. Apply the drops to each nostril 15 minutes before a feed.A vapour rub may help your baby to breathe more easily. You can buy one from your pharmacy. Apply it to his chest and back. Don’t put it on his nostrils as it could restrict his breathing.Breathing in steam may help to loosen your baby’s blocked airways and relieve his cough. Try sitting in a steamy bathroom for a few minutes, with the shower on, while holding your baby. But don't put your baby too close to hot, steamy water, as it could scald him. Change him into dry clothes afterwards. If your baby has a stuffy nose without any other symptoms, check that he doesn't have something stuck in his nose. Even young babies are capable of putting things up there. Don't give your baby any over-the-counter cough and cold medicines. They should not be given to children under six because of the risk of side-effects your baby is under three months, take him to the doctor at the first sign of illness.  For a baby over three months, you may want to take him to the doctor to confirm that it is a common cold.  Also take your baby to the doctor if: his cold hasn’t improved after five dayshis temperature climbs above 38 degrees C if he is under three months, and above 39 degrees C if he is under six monthshe is having trouble breathinghe has a cough that won't go awayhe is rubbing his ears and seems irritated.
