ok does she have a cough? like a bark? My daughter had croup several weeks ago and she woke up in the middle of the night having trouble breathing... She cleared up later in the day but it got worse at night...
So I took her to the e.r and the doc says that when they sleep to position them in a almost upright position, that way the swelling will go down. and to also try going in the bathroom and turn on the shower full heat and sit there with her letting the steam help her breathe. he said you could also use a humidifer..
Why don't you try that till you can get a doctor? When we went to the e.r they gave her some treatments where she breathes in the mist and amoxilcyllan and steroids... If you don't want to try that take her to the e.r!
