Best Medicine for 6 Month Old

My 6 month old has a runny nose and a cough for the third time this year. The first and second time I took her to the pediatrician she told me to give her saline drops and let it run its course. A lot of old school moms are saying no, give her Benadryl or Castor oil. What is best?

My 2 1/2 Week Old Is Has a Cold!!! I Need Help!!

Hello everyone, I have a 2 1/2 week old baby boy that unfortunaly got a cold from us. The whole family got a cold...our symptoms are stuffy and some of us runny nose (thick), headache (pressure), throat pain. And since last night I think my newborn got it. I can sense it when he breaths like he is congested somehow. He doesn't have a fever, diarrhea and he eats fine but slowly like he has mucus in his throat. You know! And of course the weekend and no doctors open. Can anyone recommend me what is the best thing to do since he is so little?...
