Our 7 month old boy has the croup. :( The hardest part is that every time he coughs, he bursts into tears. I don't know if it hurts his chest, or his throat, but it clearly hurts him somewhere. Poor guy. Anyway, we took him to the Dr. today and they gave him a steroid shot to help open his breathing passages, but didn't offer a lot of advice about how else to make him feel better. He's not feverish, really, but definitely is fussy and uncomfortable. He's in his crib now, sleeping fitfully. I have the vaporizer on in there to put moisture in the air. Anything else anyone has done to help a croupy baby feel better?
