Try a vaporiser. It helps loosen the mucous so it is easier for them to bring up, as well as clear out the nasal passages. My 4 month old daughter currently has her first cold, which has turned into an ear infection, and the vaporiser is helping her sleep at night. I've also raised one end of her mattress so she's on a slight slant. Hope this helps. It's awful seeing your bubba have a coughing fit :(

If the congestion is in her chest we tried putting vicks vapor rub on her feet and then putting socks on when she went to bed at night. It seemed to help, we only did it for two nights. That was when Chloe was 6 or 7 mths old so your daughter should be fine with it.
