Yes, I went to the pedi on Fri and my LO has a virus. She said to give him 2 ml of children's benadryl. I have been giving it to him at night all weekend to help with his stuffy nose and cough.

Another suggestion is also to try using the saline spray before you suction their nose. My dd has had a couple of colds and this has always helped to break up her congestion without having to use medication. Saline is just salt water. I would try that before turning to benadryl if you can.
