    my husband did put a lil not a whole lot of lavender or peppermint in her humidifier it seemed to help, the lavender calmed her.

  • I would strap my daughter into her carseat while taking a nap and then set her in the bathroom with me while I took a hot shower when she had RSV. The incline helped her breath better and the steam cleared up her sinuses.
