  • i agree with pp. water is a great expectorant and the humidifier will help break up the mucus in her chest and sleep better.

  • everyone has told me to get a warm mist humidifier. whats the difference

  • The warm mist helps break up the mucous and junk in the lungs.

    You can also take her into the bathroom and shut the door and turn the shower on hot and just let the water run and sit in there with her.

  • vicks on the feet also help coughing. Rub some on her feet and put socks on...strange, but it works!
