Sounds like snot is pooling in her throat at night. Nose sucker is helping a bit.

I use a combo of Saline spray, snot sucker & calpol plug in

Calpol plug in and saline spray were my go to ones and raise the cot a bit if you can (I put books under the legs)

I second using calpol plug ins. I put one in the living room during the day as well in the bedroom at night.

Also plenty of fluids.

I got some vapour bath stuff from asda the last time my little one had a cold too. I put it in his bath as well as in the sink with hot water to create steam. If you try to keep your baby playing in the bath as long as possible with the door shut it really helps.

I use olbas oil sprinkled on the curtains near her head. Way out of reach, but fills the whole room with the scent

Calpol plug-ins are good. Switch on half an hour before bed

Savers do the refills cheaper than elsewhere

Raise the head of their mattress so they are on a slight slope

Baby vicks on the feet
