  • you are doing all you can. I know it's heartbreaking to hear your baby cough. But there isn't much else you can do. I would ask his Peds, he might have some other ideas

  • You can also rub Vick on the bottom of his feet bbefore bed and put socks on him. This helps a ton. My dd started coughing last night, I did this and it helped. If he is having a runny nose, which can cause coughing as well, do saline nasal sprays and suck of the mucos with a bulb syringe. Good luck, hope he gets better.

  • I tried the Vick on the bottom of his feet. I usually do that anyways because it helps my son sleep tons better. I asked the doctor and he said hes fine leave him alone. Every baby gets a cough. My baby is 6 months old and never been sick. This is the closes he has been to being sick. Plus hes my first kid so maybe this is why im so worried.
