  • Vicks vapor rub works wonders. Put some on her chest....

  • I like humidifiers and air purifiers along with suctioning the stuff out of the nose and hot rag compress.

  • If you are nursing, put a little breast milk in her nose,. it has antibacterial properties and will help clear it.

  • What is illadin? You should never give a baby, especially one that young, any medications. If you're worried, call the doc, but don't give baby anything without doc saying so, and even then question it because of baby's age.

  • i agree with the shower steam but there is also infant cold medicine i would recommend tylenol or sudefed (i dont think i spelled them right)
