My 5 month old.... *Question Added* ***ETA***

My 5 month old is totally congested. her breathing sounds wet and she has really wet hacking coughs.  I hate that the doctors probably won't do anything for her either.  What would you girls do?

Another poster said her nurse hubby said to call the nurse hotline.  Who agrees?



I called and the nurse said it sounds like just a cold.

Do you breast feed? Squirt a lil milk up her nose if you do.

I always take my kids into the bathroom, turn the shower on, and sit in there for about 20 minutes or so. The steam opens them right up.
