  • sometimes a humidifier will help, or put a little bit of vicks on her feet and then put socks on her.

  • Humidifier in her room. We even bought some Vicks plug in things.. I don't know how well they worked because by the time we got them he was getting better anyway. They also make a Vapor bath which we used with my son. And baby vicks.
    But that is about all you can do. You'll probably have some sleepless nights... but it won't last too long hopefully.
