  • My dd had it at about 5 months old, and we had to run a hot shower and stand in the bathroom so the steam could help her breathe. She sounded like a seal barking when she coughed and she made a weird wheezing noise, it's hard to describe, but it was scary.

  • yes my daughter has had it before. Take your child to the doctors so they can get antibiotics

  • My daughter had croup once and it was very scary. Everything else all the other ladies said is true about steaming them in the shower, vaporizer, antibiotics etc. But watch your child closely because it can become more serious. Its rare so not to freak you out, but my daughter had to be hospitalized because her breathing was so restricted. They just kept her overnight so they could give her "breathing treatments." Hope all is well soon!
