Crying Hysterically

Hi 
Yesterday afternoon we went out for a walk with my baby boy who is only 13 weeks. Last night he could''nt sleep, he was coughing, had a running nose and cried hysterically. He is only breast milk. what could be the problem? Do we need to worry or can we just get him somethng ova the counter?

Your baby probably finds it difficult to sleep beciause he has a cold that is causing him to have a blocked nose. Use Salex nose drops twice daily. If his nose is still blocked after using the Salex,use a nasal suction device called Nosefrida to clear his nose [ask your pharmacist about this]
