my 11 month old has a bad cold but i dont think theres a whole lot i can do except give her tylenol... and she feels alittle warm but i already gave her the last dose and i can't get any more tilli get out to the store this afternoon. i've tried humidifiers, elevating her mattress a bit, the tylenol, popscicles and formula and juice, tried sucktioning out the yuckies but can't seem to get out much... anything else I can do? she seems miserable, shes asleep on my lap now for the third time today and its only 12:30pm.

Give her a bath and let her sinuses drain.

Sometimes, the only thing you can do is let them sleep. 8^/

Bath with baby vicks will break it up.

baby vicks on feet with socks and or chest.

Vicks stuff in the humidifier.

Limit dairy intake as that will cause more mucus

Try putting vicks vapo rub on her feet and a fresh pair of socks on and let her sleep. Put some on her chezt as well. And not too much diary.....I learned that the hard wt it makes it worse with the mucus.

I agree with giving her a bath and if you can get her Johnson's Soothing Vapor Bath that would help alot also.

Turn the shower to hot and shut the door until it gets steamy then just sit in the floor with her for 10-15 min. The steam is supposed to help. Nasal drops, humidifier and yes the Vicks on her feet should help too. Hope she feels better soon!
