  • I'm not saying this is what it IS...but he might be coming down with croup.

    It could just simply be the mucous draining, too! (more likely) But croup is a virus that settles in the throat and I'm a bit gun shy when it comes down to boys have had it a LOT. lol

    Just watch him and start treating him for a cold now...elevate his head, humidifier, steaming and suctioning as you can, Tylenol for discomfort....
