4mo old baby with nasty cough..what do I do??
My son is 4mo old now and overall is a very healthy baby. He breastfed 90% of the time, and an extreamly happy baby.
He came down with a small cough about 2 weeks ago now that has progessivly gotten worse. I finally took him to the Dr simply because they told me over the phone that they wont treat with out seeing him first. So we went in and they told me exactly what I thought.
"Its upper respitory infectiong, and it just needs to run its course" oh and there is a possibitly of asthma but they wont diagnosis that untill he is older, because there is no treatment at his age unless it is severe. ----this is all coming from the Dr.
My son is now not able to sleep on his back its so bad and he wakes himself up coughing and can't seem to catch his breath untill he clears his chest. It sounds so bad. He hasn't had a runny nose, but I have used the nasal aspirator and got a ton of snot out. and also used saline spray. He started to run a low grade temp tonight at 100.1 and I gave him tylonal.
I feel so bad, and helpless. What can I do to help him??!! Is there anything I can give him that is natural?? Help!
