See advice below.: Use saline nose drops and suction the mucus from the nose as often as needed (if he can blow his nose, do that after saline drops). Also, elevate the head of the crib or bed.

Simple home remedies like warm water with honey and lemon before bedtime, breathing in steam in a hot/steamy bathroom before bedtime, and Tylenol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen for any pain/fever relief. ...Read more
