Not every kid gets that. My daughter had croup and it ran its course without any problems. I just used the humidifier.

My dd had croupe and didn't have strider. What you can do is, run a very hot shower, steam up the bathroom, and sit in there for at least 15 minutes. The other thing, bundle her up and take her outside in the cool air for 15 minutes. Both work well, but one always helps more, depends on the child.

Should I wait until he is coughing ? Right now he is sleeping.

Yes. When he is having a coughing fit, that's when you do it. It will ease the cough.
