Your daughter has only been at a creche for 1 week and already she has her first cold. Children of this age cannot sleep if they have a blocked nose. Use a Salex nasal spray or Sterimar nasal spray twice a day to help her to clear her nose. Also give her a good immune booster such as Creche Guard every day.
