My 6 month old son had a stuffy/runny nose for about a week. No fever, no cough, no loss of appetite or anything like that. He was just about over it and then we had his 6 month checkup 3 days ago. His doctor said he was doing perfectly and said that he didn't even have any signs that he was getting over a cold. Well last night, he started coughing in his sleep and has been coughing all day. No runny nose anymore, no fever, no loss of appetite...just a little bit more cranky than usual...not super smiley. I'm a first time mom so of course I'm thinking the worst...that he either has RSV, croup, or pnemonia. I am debating whether or not to take him back to the doctor tomorrow because I don't want to A. pay for an office visit for them to tell me he's fine and B. possibly expose him to WORSE in the waiting room. What would you do if you were me?
