When my kiddos were babies I would rub a dab of baby Vicks rubs on their chest and back, Nasal spray, and a humidifier. This will hopefully help until you can get him/her to the Dr.

Don't give her anything. Call her doctor. In the meantime, you can run a cool mist humidifier where she sleeps, or bring her in the bathroom while letting the hot shower run (obviously don't bring her IN the hot shower). Most decongestants are not for infants (they are not safe), in fact, I cannot think of any over the counter that are ok at ALL, or cough medicines.
