As some of you may know I have a baby who is frequently at the office and he has picked up his first cold. Poor baby! A few things that have been helpful around these parts are the Nosefrida Snotsucker
You just place the tube against baby's nostril and suck the snot away! You might think "Eww, gross!" but there is a little filter so not a bit of mucus touches your lips. And boy does it work! The traditional bulb aspirator can't hold a candle to the NoseFrida.
Next on the list is doTERRA's Breathe blend, I am quite the fan of essential oils (see my shop here!). I mix one drop of this blend with a drop or two of jojoba oil and rub it on baby's chest and back; it works like Vicks but I think it is stronger and it doesn't contain any petroleum jelly and is safe to use on babies, it's 100% natural.
Poor baby is on day 2 of his cold but snuggles, and his favorite blanket and stuffed animal seem to be helping him. Get well soon sweetheart!
