  • Just make sure baby postion upright position ...not flat ..especially if nose is runny.....keep giving treatments when its needed...its hard to tell if gaging ...just cough to clear her throat.....dont panic ..u just being alert more because they cant tell u with words whats wrong...never go with 2nd thoughts .....if u feel she need to go to doctore keep taking her....until ur comfortable i understand whats wrong. Write things down she do when u hold her or put her a certain way. every child is different ..every new baby makes u feel lost even if u already have kids .see if there classes for asthma baby her age help u adjust better.
