Awe hun it is hard when they are ill and so small. Four months is quite small to do much, here's what I would try. Put a bowl of water on the radiator in his room or take him in the shower room while you run the shower really hot so the steam can help loosen his congestion. You can use olbas oil on a tissue and or a drop and place it near his cot (I put the tissue under the cot matress cover for mine.) You will have to check the label just to be sure but snuffle babies is like a vics for los and it is really good. I know this sounds strange but my mum always swears you need to rub it on the soles of their feet. I have always done so and it does help, and you can rub it on their chest and backs. I believe at four months he can have calpol or calprofen (if he is coughing calprofen would probably work better as it's an anti inflamatory which should ease swelling and irritation.) If he is having loose bowels keep a check on his fluids... just keep encouraging them at all cost, and he can have watered down rehydration sachets - dyoralite (I think they are called something like this - sp?)
Best wishes hope you both feel better soon

Trying to conceive with PCOS.
Hi, I hope I’m posting this in the right place. I’m new to this so bare with me 🙈. Background - I was diagnosed with PCOS a little over a year ago and have been trying to conceive for just over 2 years. I have been to fertility appointments who haven’t found any additional problems (e.g. hcg scan came back clear) and my partners tests were all ok. I understand weight is a big factor with PCOS and I have lost 10% of my body weight as recommended and keep trying to loose more. The more time goes on the more deflated and useless I feel. Each time I get excited thinking it might be my time then I get a false test 🤦♀️ The fertility appointments are far apart and the months in between each one just seem longer and longer. I was was wondering if anyone had been through similar experiences and have any advice? I have also read online that ovulation sticks don’t always work for women with PCOS. Anyone have any advice on this? Thank you for taking the time to read this. x
