    What can you give a baby of 4 months for a cold other than calpol?

    He is very 'snuffly' during the night and its waking him up :(

    If you bring him into the bathroom with you and turn on the hot taps or the shower and steam the room and sit in there for 5 or 10 minutes it should help loosen the congestion. If his nose is blocked you can use saline drops (ask you pharmacist for them) - you put one or two drops in each nostril before you feed him.
    Also, try karvol capsuals put on a tissue or hanky and put it near to him where he sleeps (but not so close he can touch it) or where is is when he's awake. That should losen the stuffy nose too.

    Hope that helps xx

    Hi,

    Thanks for your advice!

    I bought some 'Medised' today and he had some after his bath with his feed. I am going to look for those drops aswell (Karvol?) to put on his sheet at bedtime.

    He has been very sleepy today and not eaten much, bless him :(

    Isnt it horrible when they are poorly!!!

    I out a wet towel on the radiator in the room, and raise the end of the crib matress a bit, it works wonders.
