my 4 1/2 month old daughter has a little cough or something....

The past few days, shes been coughing a lot. It's not like a hack it up cough, its little soft coughs but about 10 in a row....

She just got over being sick with a virus in her intestines and belly, do you think its just something that came along with that?

  • I am not saying this is what it is but my daughter coughs on purpose. She is the same age as your daughter. She figured out a new sound, and she likes to do it. If you are to worried about, I would call the doctor.

  • Might also be allergies. My daughter is 4 months old and has horrible allergies. She is always sneezing and coughing.

  • If there are no other symptoms, I wouldn't worry too much. If a fever or runny nose or something else develops, call the doctor. If not, its likely just a new sound baby figured out how to make. The risk of picking up something at the doctor doesn't seem worth the trip for this case...but thats just what I would do.
