  • If she is congested, you can rub baby vicks on her back and the bottom of her feet with clean white socks over it (sounds strange, but it works) - I have found that even the baby vicks is too strong to have on their chests w/o it irritating their noses, but others say it's fine. Use a cool mist vaporizer in her room as well. The tylenol should help with any sinus headaches she might have as well as the fever. Good luck!!!
