: Hi, my son (8mos)has a nasty cold and i tried giving him PediaCare, but it makes him very hyper and anxious. He always reacts to medications like this though. Is there any over the counter stuff I can give him for his nose so he can sleep at night that won't make him psycho?

Hi Jessica, I was just getting ready to post a similar post regarding my daughter. She is 11mos. old and has a severe head cold. She cannot breath through her nose to save her life. I have been using childrens dianatap (sp?)It seems to help slightly but I really dont think there is much we can do for the poor little things. At best I would suggest using a cool mist humidifier in his room at night and saline drops in his nose. I'm going out tonight to get a new humidifier for my little one as well.

Best of luck to your poor little guy.
