In brief: Infant saline nose

drops followed by gentle suction of her nose with a bulb syringe help.
Place a vaporizer across her bedroom, not close to her crib. If she has a rectal temperature of 100-4, laboredn breathing, decreased nursing &;/or decreased peeing, see her doctor. She'll swallow mucus & spit it up or pass it in her stool. As long as the mucus is loose & no other symptoms exist, give it about

In brief: See below

Patience . Using a vaporizer, the saline nose drops and elevation of the baby while laying down will help.
But the baby ultimately has to heal themselves.
