In brief: Stuffy nose

Unfortunately there are no longer over the counter cold medication for infants and toddlers.
. . . You can try giving him menthol baths using johnson and johnson, menthol baby wash, you can use vicks rub as long as he is wearing a tshirt to avoid rubbing his eyes. Also the vicks vaporizing mentholated pads work well when placed under a crib . If he has a fever, see your doctor.
