My daughter is 2 yrs old, and a real stuffy nose, wet sounding cough, snezzing, the works. I got her crib matteress propped up to maybe helping her breathe easier. Is there any advice I can get? Can I put some baby vicks vapor rub on her? What signs do I need to look out for if ths turns bad? Is it normal for them to run a fever? If so what temp? Oh and in case ya'll couldn't tell I am a new mom...lol.. This is actually the first time since she was a infant she has gotton sick.
What would be considered labored breathing? When she was sleeping last night I watched her breathe it seemed to be a little fast. She breathed thru her mouth and out and her tummy would 'pop' out, and it would be fairly rapid. It has seened to go into her chest so she is coughing alot, so she isn't sleeping to well. Not realy eating, drinking a little. We just about a foot of snow or so it seems, and I can't get my car out of our drive way! So what kinda stuff is better to drink? I have the V-8 smoothie juice and I have the Motts for Tots juice, less sugar then the juicy juice. I still am doing half and half. Is there anythjing I can do with helping her and the cough? O don't have a humidifer yet. I feel like an idiot and helpless. And we now have a damn snow storm, 1st one of the year and now she gets sick. lol Well I expect nothing less cause I always seem to get sick when it is the most inconvenient time to do so. So any advise ya'll can give me would be most helpful.
