3wks old, coughing

My son is 3 weeks old and has a cough. It's a yucky wet sounding cough that he's had for two days now. Should I call the docs? Or wait and see if it goes away on its own? What would you do?

  • I would def call the doc, that is way to young to have a cough like that, better safe than sorry, cuz if it is something and you just try to wait it out and see, it could get worse or turn into something more serious....good luck, hope everything turns out ok!
