First of all , you should be careful not to expose small babies to people with cough and cold. Avoid taking her to crowded places where there may be droplets in the air , produced by others who have coughed in the vicinity. For minor infection, if the child does not have much breathing or feeding difficulties, saline nasal drops and steam inhalation should suffice. If it doesn't help much please show to a Pediatrician.
