My baby girls who is 6 months just got croup...any advice???
MOST HELPFUL POSTS
stand in the bathroom with the door shut and have the shower going, only hot water, rock her in the steam...it helps ease cough a bit, also, she'll have a nice warm mommy to cuddle with, do this every couple of hours. its not a miracle, but comforting her will help quite a bit... good luck, hope she feels better soon

Steamy bathroom, humidifiers in the bedroom, and a little elevation while they sleep. My son had croup once, and our doc recommended warm apple juice (you'd probably want to water it down so she doesn't get the runs...) or warm lemonade.
Hope she gets feeling better soon!

My kids have never had it but my brother did.. Alot of walking around ask your doctor about Vicks cream, that helped him tons, but I think he might have been a month or 2 older but it might still be okay for her.. Maggie has a great tip too I remember doing that for him

My son had croup twice, we use a vicks humidifier in his room, it worked really well. His room was like being in the tropics lol all hot a steamy but it helped, also elevate her head at night when they lay flat it make the coughing worse. hope she feels better soon!
