  • Lots of snuggles! Nothing feels better when you're sick than having Mommy close!

  • Oh my, I am sorry. I hope the baby gets better soon. Maybe some rocking. Sips of water. Did your doctor mention vicks - a little on her chest? I wouldn't do this, though, unless the doctor says OK. What about a vaporizer?

  • Popsicles. My girls LOVED them when they got sick and it won't upset her little tummy:)

  •  hi, I would use a vaporizer or humidifier during the day, and especially at night in her room. give lots of water, chicken soup, herbal teas to loosen her congestion, and be sure not to give any sugar while she is sick. it slows down your immune system from be able to fight the virus, and so it will take longer to recover. I hope your little one feels better soon, hang in there, Mama!   love your daughters' name, I have a 3 1/2 year old granddaughter with the same!
