Re: How long to get over a cold?
I find with both of my kids that the runny nose and the congestion tend to hang around for awhile afterwords. Both my kids fell sick last weekend and have been on antibiotics for the last 7 days. The ear infections are gone, but the cough and the runny nose are still hanging around. Just keep an eye on him. Elevate his head at night and use a humidifier in his room. I will use Vicks on their chest as well. They do sell Vicks for infants. Good luck! You'll find that even the slightest change (travel, cold, teething) can upset their sleep routine.
