See doctor: A 2-month old baby is often healthy protected by the antibodies from the mother. Although this may well be just a cold, it is best to bring the baby to the doctor to find out the cause since babies can get sick in a hurry.

Do not give meds: It is not recommended to give babies less than a year old any type of over the counter cold medicine. Use a humidifier at night to help clear the sinuses. A bulb suction or a nosefrida can help suck out the nose as well. Make sure the bay gets plenty to drink
