What to give an 11 month old with a bad cough

She's had it for at least 2 weeks. We tried the Desylum and it cleared it up for maybe 2 days than it came back. She's really congested. Thanks

  • If she has been sick for 2 weeks I would bring her to the doctor.
    But other than making her more comfortable there isn't anything you can give her. Humidifier in her room, saline drops to her nose and then suck it out, sleep at an incline put a pillow under her crib mattress.... if she is very fussy or seems uncomfortable Tylenol or Motrin to keep her comfortable. Push fluids.
