My son had a very bad cough a couple of weeks ago. I looked for homeopathic remedies, but the only one I found was for ages 2 and up and contained honey, so no-go.
We ran our humidifier in the room at night, and that really calmed the cough so that he could sleep. The doctor said cool, humid air is best to break up the mucus, so we also cracked the window a bit to keep the room cool.
We have a regular warm mist humidifer, but I read that it's just as effective - the cool mist ones were designed so that baby wouldn't pull it over accidentally and get scalded.
