Lots of cuddles and love for the baby, it does help. Read her some stories and watch cartoons/kid shows with her. As for eating/drinking, I would suggest, applesauce, orange juice, crackers, popsicles or ice pops, chicken noodle soup (even just the broth from the soup would be fine). Vicks VapoRub for Babies (click here) on her chest with a warm wash cloth over it may help with any congestion.

For momma, much of the same as for baby, though add some hot teas and vitamin C in there.

Also, for both of you, don't drink milk or consume dairy products. If you have a chest cold it can add to the congestion and thicken any mucous.

Hope you feel better soon!
