I hope she feels better soon. I just got done dealing with a sick baby, and I was not able to sleep for like a week! I know it is tought to deal with a sick baby. Something I found that really helped my son was PediaCare Vapor plugs. I plugged it in while he slept and the vapors seemed to help. After 2 nights he woke up and seemed to be breathing much better.

It is rough when they are teething, too. They are miserable. Every once in a while I give my baby the homeopathic teething tablets. They seem to work. I try not to give them to him too often, though, because they contain belladonna.

Baby saline drops if they are for that age will help. Vicks makes a vapor bath or at least they used to. The humidifier is a good idea. If she seems achy the acetaminophen (tylenol) is probably your best choice. Holding her in a more upright position, like you are will help her breathe better. Does she sound rattly when she breathes? If she does I would definitely call the ER or an urgent care center.

This my easy and fast way if get my kid become such as your doughter. Just flame the lamp (25-40 watt) Wrap with dark paper And draw near to her about 1/2 metre distance.

If she is congested and it is just a cold no temp personally i wouldnt go and see a doctor , try saline drops for her poor little nose that will help the congestion also a bowl of hot water with some vapour drops in it in the same room maybe sit in the bathroom with the shower running and the door closed so its nice and steamy all those will help, raise her matress a bit stick a couple of folded towels under the matress where her head lies this will help her while she is sleeping. Im always white as a ghost when ive got a cold ( I have one now and seriously look awful) congestion can be painful so maybe some baby parecetemol if she is old enough but you are doing the most important thing holding her keeping her calm and settled will help while it passes, I HATE it when my girls are ill you can often end up feeling really useless especially with colds because there isnt really anything you can do for them except comfort them and if she is teething on top of that aswell I sympathise i really do. I hope she is feeling much better for her birthday All the best xxxx
