Hey Red, my dd had a cold maybe 6 weeks ago; she wasn't coughing much though. But I have only one word (or two as a matter of fact): SALINE drops!!!! Put a ml in each nostril several times a day. It really truly helps and it disinfects. She won't like it but it will relieve her congestion...

Yes, I think CgGirl is right. When my little guy had a cold we used saline drops and also the suction bulb. He hated it but we did suck out some of the yuckiness to help him breath. Other then that they don't really recommend anything. Just make sure she stay hydrated and watch out for wheezing. When Ethan had a cold we all got it and we had a sick party at our house. Not fun at al, so try to keep yourself healthy, wash your hands a lot, it might help.

Red - You may want to take your LO to the doc. Our LO had a cold at that age and it turned into something really nasty and we had to put her on a nebulizer. Just in case...
