Might b best to  call his pediatrician and ask him/her what is best to make sure it is nothing too too serious they might ask u to come in. I doubt there is much u. can give a baby so so young but the doctor will know best

Hospital is overkill...use the ER for emergencies only. Its most likely nothing. As long as he has no fever, and is otherwise acting fine you can call your pediatrician in the morning. Children under 6 years cannot have cough and cold medicines but most of the time in newborns coughing and sneezing is normal and just them adjusting to the environment.
