What can you give baby under 1 year old when they have a cold?

Its rough listening to your baby sneeze and cough. What non drugs can you give such a young human to make it feel better?

Ive heard suggestions of a humidifier, baby vicks and kids saline, anything else? Or anything against what I have already listed?

    Baby paracetamol is really the best thing to soothe those symptoms, but if you are really against any form of pharmaceutical help, then the next best thing is to make sure her vitamin C levels are kept up with fresh orange juice and other citrus drinks. Vitamin C strengthens the immune system. Some experts argue against its effectivity, but the ward sister on one of the wards I worked in insisted on giving her nurses a vitamin C tablet every day, and none of us caught a cold in the 18 months I worked there.
