6 month old DD sick?

DH has the flu and I have a bad cold. Today DD has a bit of a cough and is sleepier than usual. She was very fussy when I was feeding her earlier (ebf - I was going to start weaning this weekend). She's happy out otherwise though.

Is there anything I should be doing or not doing?

Keep an eye on her temperature and give calpol if worried. make sure she doesn't get too sleepy or hot as can be worrying if so call GP etc.

If just a cold calpol or equivalent and sometimes a baby menthol vapour rub for night helps mine.

Also lots of fluids so check doesn't miss any feeds due to sleepiness.

lots of cuddles too
