Any tips for helping an infant get over a cold more quickly? Recommendations for relieving symptoms are good, too, but I'm particularly interested in recovery. Thanks!

    I just discovered this which is like a million times better than the snot sucker nose frieda because you don't have to use your own mouth. It's battery operated and my daughter likes it a lot better. I think it feels better.

    Also cutting up onions and leaving them around the house and near my daughter's crib is something I swear by for making colds go away.

    When my son had a cold I bought some of the Johnsons and Johnsons soothing vapor bath soap and I pit him in the tub with it in the water and just let him play and seemed to help him

    If you are breastfeeding, do plenty of it.

    Chicken soup (puréed if he's not eating whole foods yet). It really does help. And sitting in a steamy bathroom.

    Vicks on feet under socks or footie jammies, Add some Culturelle probiootic powder and vitamin D to his milk, Use a humidifier, saline nasal spray and a Nosefrieda or similar, Lots and lots of rest and hydration, Popsicles to increase hydration, Gentle compression massage on his back to break up chest congestion, Keep his room cool (66-68 degrees) to reduce inflammation of the sinuses, Use warm wash clothes on forehead in tub to help drain sinuses, If approved by doctor, use infant Motrin to reduce swelling

    The Vicks on the bottom of the feet works so awesome!! You can get baby Vicks too so it does the same thing without being adult strength
