5 month old with cough and runny nose

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Is there anything I can do for her other than the obvious? She's coughing b/c her nose is running, but other than that is happy and eating and sleeping fine. Her nose doesn't run and she doesn't cough when she sleeps. My doc's office said keep up with the fluids and watch for a fever...

You could run a humidifier with some lavender or euclyptus oils in it at night or even around the area she is in during the day. This may ease her congestion a bit. Also use a suction bulb to get the snotties out if she is really stuffed up.

we used to run the shower on hot hot hot to steam the room and then sit in there for a few. Also if she sleep in a co sleeper or a crib you can elevate the head end.
