  • If you can send DH/So out to the store to pick up the vapor run night light they work really well. I have one when my dd is sick like that and it was very relieving, then I got sick and can testify they are comforting. You can also rub vicks on her chest and on her feet and put socks on. It does work I have no idea why. Another thing you can do is run the shower on hot and sit in there with her and it will losen up everything and the sooner you can get it out the sooner shes better.
