  • yes croup cough. it is dangerous just have her sleep with you listen for her and be calm if she wakes up coughing crazy. if you start the shower really hot shut the door and let the steam fill the bathroom that will help clear the mucous out of her throat so she can breath better.

  • You will hear her. My son sounded like a barking seal. They should have given her something to take. My son got this 1 week before his first b-day and they gave him something to take. Can't remember what it was called but there was only 2 doses. By the next day he was better.

  • My son had it a couple years ago. It was scary. If your baby has a coughing/gasping attack at night take her into the bathroom, close the door, and let the shower run hot. The steam helps. Or take her outside into the cool night air. Both of those help.
