Brief Answer:
Could be an indicator of underlying pneumonia. Needs medical attention

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on Health care magic.

I have gone through your query and I understand your concerns. Rapid breathing may be an indicator of underlying pneumonia and needs to be clinically evaluated. The Mummy that you mention is likely to be grunting which is also a indicator of respiratory distress. You should take the child to a doctor and get her clinically examined. As of now you may give steam inhalation. It will help in dilute in the cough will thereby provide relief.
