    Re: 7 month old is sick what should i give him

    I hear your pain...my 7 month old has had two colds in the last 6 weeks (gotta love day care) and the first one was really bad where she couldn't sleep at night b/c she couldn't breath. What is did was rolled a towel up and pput it between the mattresses so she was inclined a little and i also used a humidifer...which has seemed to help a great deal. Also used a lot of saline drops to help clear her nose....otherwise there is nothing that you can really give them anymore. I know when my older daughter (who's 6 1/2 now) was her age i gave her infant decongestant and that did help her....but they have since pulled that from the shelves, so this was all new to me. we live in the northeast and the nights have been getting cooler so i also stood outside with her for a few minutes to relieve the pressure; she did seem happier after that. Good luck....

    You can also buy Vicks Baby Rub. It is just like the vapor rub for adults but a little less intense. I rub a little right under DD's nostrils, which helps her a lot.
