Hi, my 15 month old has a cold and is very congested. I am taking him to the doctor on Monday but, in the meantime, I was looking for tips from other mums as to how to ease his congestion (particularly so that he can sleep a little better).

I have an antihistamine liquid that was previously prescribed for him so will give him that but what about other options to help the mucus come out? Hot baths? Using a humidifier (in this weather??). Non prescription cough mixture? What about those suction bulb thingys?

Many thanks.
