If your daughter is older than 1 you can try warm peppermint tea (very soothing and the heat works to loosen the phlegm up) or honey (I've always heard it is a natural cough suppressant. If it is waking her up or keeping her awake you could talk to your doctor. . . my son had a cough that kept him up and he was given a prescription for a cough med. 1 dose and a good night sleep made him much better.
