: 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?

I would use a cool mist humidifier, prop up head of bed, saline drops and suction with bulb syringe. Don't use too much of the saline drops though because it will have an opposite effect and congest his nose even more. I would also give over-the-counter Infant's Advil. I hope he feels better.
