You can use a nebulizer with Saline Only - no medications at this age. Also use a bulb suction device to help clear secretions from her nose. When you are taking a shower, place her in her car seat and close bathroom door to give you both a nice sauna treatment as well. This first cold is always a tough one to get through - hang in there!
