  • We have a vix cool mist humidifier. You put water, salt, and a special vix mix that you can buy at any store. We've used it since our daughter was 5+ months, it works great!

  • I was going to say the same thing, they have premixed stuff and they also have baby vicks.. it says on the bottle for 3 months and up I believe. At any rate you can call your dr if you have any quesitons. Allergies are also in season.. I would try some benadryl, talk to your pharmaist and they can give you the right dose.. GOODLUCK!!

  • Try taking her in the shower with you for a bit, too. It will help break up the mucus some. Unfortunately, there just isn't a ton you can do, other than try to soothe her.
