5 Natural Remedies for Nasty Baby Colds

baby sickFew things are more heartbreaking than watching your baby suffer with a cold. The mucus (so much mucus!); the tiny chesty cough; the little glassy eyes. It's so sad! And since many of us are reluctant to use any kind of medication on our babies -- and, let's be honest here, there really isn't anything out there that cures a cold -- what to do?

There are a few natural remedies that can help alleviate baby's congestion, cough, and fever. No, none of them will eradicate the nasty sickness altogether, but they'll definitely help shorten it a bit.

Here are 5 natural remedies for baby colds.

I didn't even think of creating a steam room type environment. My one year old has a horribly stuffy and very snotty nose, I really think this would help her!

Great tips. I hate seeing my little one sick. Usually I do a hot humidifier in the room while he sleeps and it helps tremendously.

Great tips.  We were lucky and didn't have any colds when they were babies.  We do some of these things now, if they have colds.

We used the wedge when our kids were little and not feeling well.
