boogy wipes are awesome.. I've also given my daughter some of the children's mucinex.. the children's robutussin has helped in the past..

I'm not sure. though I still think boogy wipes are awesome.. We also have a breathing machine that always helps us. My daughter had RSV and seems to get sick like this more often.

Go turn the hot water on in the shower. And let the steam build up and sit in the bathroom with her for about five min. It will help break up the mucus.

Do you have a humidifier? You can put that in her room while she sleeps. Or turn the shower on hot so it steams up and bring her in there. Use a suction bulb and saline drops if you feel comfortable.

This is what I do, too.

Is it teething? My daughter gets this eay when she teeths. I used Android electric suctionet for her nose cause it works twice as fast. Also running water in shower and boogie wipes are awesome. There isn't any meet u can give aside from tylenol or ibuprofen she's too young. If she don't have fever just keep nose clean and let it pass
