I would take her in. If its the true "flu". She could just have a virus but its always good to be checked. Its good that her temp isn't high too. Most things are viruses which there isn't much you can do other than keep her nose sucked out. humidifier if you have one and infant tylenol if running a fever (i believe they say over 101). But it would still be worth it to take her in.
