  • Make sure you are suctioning out her little nose with the bulb thingy, use some saline drops and then suck. You can run a vaporizer to keep her hydrated. I think that's about all you can do for them at that age. Oh, and keep her head propped up so she can breathe easier.

  • put her little bed thingy in the bathroom and let her just chill in it with lots of steam in the room.... and prop her up while you're doing it... my mom used to do that to us when we were little...

  • I actually like just sitting in the shower (weird I know). I would strip my little one down and just take a shower with her. Let the warm water run on her back. You always feel better after a shower. :)
