In brief: None
No cold medication is recommended for children under the age of 6 years, especially an infant.
Use of saline nasal spray with nasal aspiration is something that may help relieve nasal symptoms.

In brief: None.
Giving the baby pedialyte, using saline with nasal suction, and running a humidifier are all things that can help a baby as his/her immune system fights off the cold.
And if you are nursing, keep it up, as your immune system can help the baby fight off a cold.
