Your baby son almost certainly has an RS virus infection. This causes the symptoms you describe with your baby having a bad cold and also a chest infection. His chest infection is known as bronchiolitis.You need to keep his nose clear by using saline nose drops such as Salex nose drops twice daily in his nose.Before you put the drops in his nose use the Babyvac and suck out all the mucous from his nose that you can.Do not give him Demazin which should not be given to children under 2 years. If you keep his nose clear his cough will improve. As long as he can sleep normally and feed normally you do not need to be concerned. Most babies recover from this illness after about 10 days. If your baby cannot sleep or won't feed or if he is breathing rapidly then you should take him to be seen by your doctor.
