  • What kind of cold? How long have the symptoms been going on? There are usually things you can try at home first...

  • Awww poor baby. Unfortunately there really isnt anything over the counter to give her. There are however things you can do to make her more comfortable. Get some baby vicks and put it on her chest to help congestion and help her breath. You can turn on the hot shower and take her into the bathroom for 15 minutes twice a day, that will also help with breathing and congestion. If she has a cough, put vicks on her feet (YES her FEET) right before bed and then put socks on her (SOCKS not footie jammies, those wont work). They sell pediacre plug in vaporizors that you can plug in her room to help her breath better at night. I hope shes feeling better honey.
