Hi,
Sorry to hear your sons got a cold, my little boy always seems to pick them up, when he was that age, we always used baby vickes, calpol when he was grizzly and a rolled up towel placed under the mattress near his head so that the mattress was on an angle, it will help to stop the mucous build up in his nose whiles he's sleeping.
Hope this helps xx

Poor thing Sad
You could try the neurofen, it's suitable from 3 months, i'd never used it before, but last month my son was really poorly with a virus, we were in a&e and he had a temp of 40c, i'd given him capol and it didn't help properly, the nurse gave him nurofen and within an hour he was aloud back home.
Nurofen can be given with calpol, so we alternated every 2 hours between calpol and nurofen, the pharmacists should be able to advise you better than me though Smile
Hope he feels better soon x
