At this age, it is best to avoid any cough or cold medications as they generally aren't very effective for babies and have a lot of side effects. But it really is hard to see your little one suffer. Sorry she's not feeling well. I recommend keeping her in her room with a humidifier and/or letting her sit in the bathroom while you shower. The warm moist air should help to keep the cough controlled and also loosen any mucus in her chest or nose. If she's not sleeping well, elevating her crib mattress or even letting her sleep in an upright bouncy chair or swing might help her rest better. Good luck! Those first few colds and illnesses are the worst! Make sure you call her doctor if her fever spikes as it could be a sign of a more serious condition or ear infection.
