Re: Q's regarding cold or something similar in 15 month old
I can usually determine if my dd is sick or allergies.... a runny nose or congestion with cough is allergies as long as the mucus discharge is clear...once it starts changing color then it's a sickness. (don't know if that works for everyone, but that's what helps us determine sickness at our house.)
as far as not taking medicine...trying mixing it with juice to help mask the taste. (Gatorade and pedialyte works well when mixed with it.)
Gentle vapors works great...also, if you take hot showers, try keeping him int he bathroom with you ... the warm air from teh shower and the shower mist will help open up the airways for easier breathing. hth!!
