Ladies, Emma is so sick with a cold. she has a fever,runny nose, a little cough ,sore throat(i can hear it in her voice) shes crying . i have been holding her since last night.
she is eating and drinking fine tho. i have been giving her infant tylenol only. plus humidiphier and bath and tilted her mattres. Is there any meds you can give a baby this young? I also have been putting micro amounts of vix near her nose. its been almost 8 years since i had an infant. any new safe meds?
The whole house all the children are very ill.

I don't think there are any meds you can give her. You sound like you are doing everything you can. Salene drops and bulb syringe are just about all I can think of. I hope she feels better soon.

Sounds like you're doing everything you can. I would only say is that you should use Vicks Baby Rub on your little one and not the regular strength adult version.

There are no safe meds. Poor baby, makes me feel sad. Be careful with the Vicks, you dont want it anywhere near the face!

Try the Vicks waterless vaporizer. I love those things. If she keeps being so miserable, I may take her in to rule out an infection.

Baby Vicks on the feet with socks over it works great for cough!

Thanks ladies Some of these ideas are something I am going to try. At the moment she is FINALLY sleeping. I jacked up the front of her bassinet so she is sleeping at an angle and let her take a nice steamy shower with me and I could tell she could finally breath. Then I handed her off to DH and he put on her lotion and cuddled until I got out of the shower and then she fell asleep after she finished her milk. My poor baby! My other children are all sick to. Its so hard to see an infant go threw this....

Yes, you are doing pretty much everything. I also massage Luyando with towel dipped in very warm (nearly hot) water. I put it on my skin to make sure its not too hot. I press it on her chest and back couple of times and then rub her chest, back, and feet with baby vicks vapor rub. Wear a socks on her feet and incline her bed. Hope she and the rest of the family feel better soon.
