Brief Answer:
Humidifier

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for the query.

Babies with cough and cold generally cries due to nose block and congestion at night.

Some home remedies worth trying are moist air helps loosen the mucus in the nasal passages.

You can use A humidifier, cool-mist vaporizer.

Saline drops( homemade saline drops: Dissolve about 1/2 teaspoon of salt in 8 ounces of boiled and cooled water ) and bulb syringes for clearing nose.

But if the problem persists see a doctor.
Hope your child a speedy recovery.

Ask some more queries if you have or kindly rate the answer.
