In brief: Runny nose toddler
The only treatments recommended for children under 5 years of age are nasal saline to dry up mucous and decongestant the mucous membranes, and/or a suction bulb to such out excessive or very thick mucous.
A cool mist humidified might have some benefit in the bedroom. If the baby is uncomfortable, then tylenol (acetaminophen) or children's Ibuprofen may help.
