Try some vicks vapor rub on the chest and a bit on the forehead. I have also heard people swear by putting it on their feet with socks, hope this works. (they make infant rub)

i would call and ask your pediatrician what they recommend. all peds are different. mine did not allow us to use vicks at all. also, i wouldn't give tylenol unless there is an actual fever. you do not know that he has a sore throat. most likely, his cough is being caused by a post nasal drip. tylenol will not do anything for that. if it's a deep, chesty cough then it's from the chest. tylenol wouldn't do much for that either. the persistant, annoying cough is most often from a drip. i would especially say that since it happens most when he's sleeping. you can try propping him while he sleeps and a humidifier.

since it's been a week, i would go see the peditrician anyways. i am not one to run to the ped for every sniffle, but a week is a long time unless he is showing improvement. it may have started out with what the niece had, but an infant's immune system is not as developed and a little bug can turn into an infection if not monitored (bronchitis, bronchiolitis, ear infection, sinus infection, etc...)
i hope he feels better soon! i hate it when babies are sick :(
