I need homemade cold remedies for a 3 month old baby.
I have a 5 month old and I use the baby vapor bath and a bulb syringe to clear out the boogers. I would say though if the baby has a fever you should call the doctor.
You shouldn't give anything, never mind untested ideas from a website to a three month old baby without checking with your doctor. Use a bulb syringe and call your doctor for ideas.
A 3 month old infant is different from a 5 month old. At this stage there are illnesses that must be ruled out before treating a newborn( a baby three months old or younger). A fever at this age is serious and must be evaluated. most likely it is nothing , but do not take chances. Saving money is not a concern at this age. Do not take advice from self-appointed healers.

What can I do to help my little one with a cold? He is 4 months old.
By Stella from Manchester, WA
You can use children's Vicks Vapo Rub. Put some on the child's chest and then put pajamas on the child. Then put some Vapo Rub on the soles of the child's feet and put socks on the child.
As a mother of 4, I treated a lot of babies with colds. I always put Vick's on my chest. When they nursed, drank from a bottle or just slept on me they were inhaling the vapors without having a salve directly on them.
At that age you really need to take him to the doctor. Most medicines over the counter are not recommended for children under one. Plus we don't know anything about his health.
