medised will help her sleep and dry up the cold. We also use a Boots vaporiser overnight and keep head elevated. She's got loads of time to recover but if she is still a bit blocked up you may want to feed her on take off and landing and use a nasal aspirator to help keep her ears from popping painfully.

thnx girls,
i used olbus oil last night, and from 12-3 she was really bad, couldn`t breath and sleep. but after 3 she slept but she had lots cough. she had litlle runny nose last 2 days and everybody said, yeah thats the teeth,teeth coming through.
but nothing happened, we had this teething for almost 4 weeks,some days she is really bad and some days shes totally fine.

Medised is a painrelief/decongestant available from chemists etc - suitable from 3 months. The vaporiser I mentioned before is an electronic machine (from Boots) into which you insert a pad impregnated with menthol type liquid and this is released slowly over about 10 hours.
