Update:

He had a slight fever. 99.8. Xray revealed bronchitis. So doc started him on a steroid and is running a strep test. Poor kid. Weekend with grandma and he has to be sick.

Is he too old for croup? I'm babysitting him while his mom and dad are out of town. Took him to his soccer practice last night and then this started.

Its not constant but when he coughs ..its definitely a deep bark like sound.

Isn't that a constant cough? This is intermittent. It had him up all night.

I'm calling his doctor in a little bit.

No, he is not too old for croup. Some kids still get croupy coughs at 2.

Bundle him up and take him into the cool morning air for about 15 mins should help. My 7yo still gets croup cough sometimes

For some reason, I thought that was just something babies and toddlers got.
