Super sleepy? Take her to doctor, her oxygen level might be low, there is RSV a virus children get, she needs to get checked!!

Children's Vick applied to her chest and back, or Carvol should help to decongest her.

You can also place a bowl of hot water with some Vick in her room (make sure she cannot get to it).  This will help to ease the congestion.

She will probably be off her food, but make sure she gets her fluids.  It is important to stay hydrated.

She is sleeping a lot because her body is fighting the virus.
Teething babies are prone to getting colds.
If her condition worsens or she starts to get a fever get her seen by the doctor straight away.
