  • a humidifier might help or hot bath where she can breathe the vapors, but if it's really bad take her to the dr bc pertussis is going around

  • Give her a gentle massage before you put her to sleep with warm oil or apply vicks on her chest. Wrap her properly but not tightly. Avoid giving her foods like curd for a few days.....

  • Go in the bathroom shut the door and turn the shower on as hot as it goes. The steam should help clear him up. If it gets too bad, take him in to get checked out.
