  • I would take her to the doctor today. She needs medicine.

  • Why wait until Thursday? Take her today if it is that bad.

  • Does she have a fever? If not, I'd wait. They usually don't want children in the ER for regular colds (she'd end up waiting a long time). Can you get some cough medicine to hold her over until the appointment?

  • no fever everything is normal but the cough

  • Is there an urgent care in your area you can take her too? I'd bring her there if you do, just in case she needs medicine.

  • urgent care is better than the er and they are faster I'd take her there and not wait till thursday, coughs can be very irritating for kids!

  • Your the mom, only you know how bad it is and if thursday is too long away for your baby to wait. I would take her to the er so she can feel better and even sleep better. I hope she feels better.
