  • If she's coughing because of the runny nose my pediatrician told me to buy a vaporizor for at night and to put saline drops in her nose. You can buy both over the counter :-) Also, if you can find a way to prop her up a little while she sleeps. My almost 9 mos old was just sick last week!

  • Same issue here. What I found that worked for me was humidifier at night in his room, with Vicks plug ins, baby rub on his chest and feet. He hates nose drops and will not let me suction his nose. If you can get your little one to sit while you suction him that helps alot too. Good Luck!
