Nasal saline: Nasal saline drops, elevating the head of the bed with a foam wedge placed under the mattress and cool air mist may help to reduce upper airway congestion. Babies have to breathe through their noses and keeping passages clear with gentle suction and nasal saline is an important part of hr management. Her sweating may indicate difficulty breathing .
