  • Does the cough sound like croup? Like a seal barking? If so then you should take him in.

  • If he doesn't have a fever and is still eating and drinking then I would play it by ear. You can always call your doctor and they will let you know what they think you should do.

  • My son had a cough that lasted for months. Every time I took him to the doctor, for other unrelated things, his doctor said it was just something he had to get over, and he did eventually. His started at 4 months.
