  • Probaly just a cold...I would have her checked out just to be sure its not something major---babies get really sick really easily...

  • try using the Little Noses saline drops to clear some of the congestion. also it does sound like a cold, if she gets a fever you might consider running her to urgent care, but i think shes probably fine. For the coughing, i know this sounds weird , but put vicks vapor rub on the bottoms of her feet and put socks on them when shes sleeping. for some reason it really helps!

  • You need to get a vaporizor but first take her to the doctor. The green and yellow mucus symbolizes an infection on some sort.

  • I agree that green snot indicates infection, call the pedi. To help ease the congestion you can get a humidifier - keeps the mucus flowing (gross, I know) but it helps them breathe easier. If you don't have a humidifier you can steam up the bathroom and sit in the bathroom with her.
