Clap the chest and back. While you sit in the bathroom steaming, clap on your child’s chest and back (where the lungs are) firmly (harder than burping) with an open hand. This helps shake the mucus loose so your child can cough it up better.

Sleep upright. If possible, allow your child to sleep in a slightly upright position. This allows for easier breathing during sleep.
