My baby's sick.. :(

its been like ten days, she's 8 months old and she has a cough that causes her to cough and throw up mostly at night, and sometimes through the day. i took her to the doctor once and he said it'll go away, its just a cough. but how can it get better?

  • when babies get sick, it does seem like its forever. if you feel it isn't getting better though, maybe have her seen again. You can use baby vicks and a humidifier though - good luck.. its so hard when babies are sick

  • yeah it is. she doesnt have a cold, just a cough, and she throws up whenever she needs to cough something up. poor thing. sorry TMI

  • you can try propping her up at night - put a blanket under the crib mattress, maybe that will help the congestion

  • Give her lots of fluids, use a humidifier, try to keep her upright as much as possible.

    She might have allergies.
    I hope she feels better soon
