My 9-month-old's nose started running two days ago. Now when she sneezes, her mucus is thick and green. No other symptoms. What can I do to help her?

In brief: Infant URI

Infants are very prone to upper respiratory infections - especially viral which usually cause watery clear runny nose, mild cough and low grade fevers.
Concerning would be thick green discharge (could mean sinusitis), high grade fevers, lethargy, heavy fast breathing with retractions. Please see your pediatrician.
