Should I take her in??

My daughter will be 4 months Monday. She has a lil cold that caused her to have a fever of 101.3 Thursday evening (took her to the ER they gave her tylenol and did the super suction for her congestion). Ever since about 3 am she's had this hacking cough. Sometimes she'll cough so hard she vomits about 1-2 ounces of liquid (she's breastfed). She's eating fine and she isn't fussy or even unhappy. She's barely cried and she still wants to play and is super smiley. I'm just on the fence about taking her into either the Urgent Care or the ER. I'm just not sure if she should be taken in at all. Please give me some advice?

I would probably go to Urgent Care. They can probably give you something for the cough. I don't think a hacking cough is good for a 4 month old.

I don't like the sound of that cough. I would in, with a baby that young it truly never hurts because things can get worse pretty quickly.

Do you have a nurses line you can call? Whenever I was/am unsure I call and speak to one of the nurses to see what they think.

I'd take her in..A temp for a baby that young isn't good, and a hacking cough doesn't sound too good. :( Good luck mama!
