Chesty 8 week old

Dc3 has caught a chesty cough off dc2. He's only 8 weeks old an its awful seeing him poorly. My other two were never poorly this young thankfully.

He's snotty and a bit bunged up so having a bottle is a bit difficult for him. Bit chesty too, but it sounds like he struggles to cough to clear his chest iyswim.

No temperature.

Any tips to make him more comfortable?

Please take him to A and E or at least the Gp to get checked out.

Keep a close eye on fluid intake and number of wet nappies.
