  • Baby Vicks vaporub (be sure to get the "baby" kind) rubbed on the chest and believe it or not, the soles of the feet (then covered in socks). A humidifier or vaporizer in the room while sleeping can help. If she can't breathe, squirt saline in her nose to loosen mucus and suck it out (though it really makes them mad).

  • humidifier, or homeopathic remedies work well... not sure how old baby is... but also sinus rinses if baby will hold still... if not than try saline drops and sucking out the congestion...
