  • I would get a cool mist vaporizer and suck her nose and just keep her comfortable. Sleeping a lot is the bodies way of recovering.

  • Too quick for your daughter to have caught the cold from your niece.

    Suction out when you can see only.
    Saline nasal drops at each diaper change.
    Steam in the shower daily to help loosen things up.
    Keep her head elevated when sleeping.
    Either a cool mist or steam vaporizer, which ever works best for her.
    Tylenol for discomfort.
