  • unfortunately there is nothing they will give anymore. they used to have overthe counter cough meds but aparently parents started to give their children too much so they have recently took it all of the market. You could try a humidifier in her room and see if that helps any. if the cough sounds bad or she has other symptoms you may want to call the doctor and make sure it isnt' broncitis or something bad. hope she feels better soon

  • Give her a teaspoon of honey, it really helps (since she is over 12mo it's safe). Also try a humidifier (if you don't have one turn your bathroom into a steamroom by running a hot shower with the door closed), you can also use children's vicks on her chest & the soles of her feet. I know it sounds a little crazy, but if you put the vicks on the soles of her feet with some socks on it really does help. Hope she feels better soon!
