If they are ABSOLITELY miserable and almost vomitting from coughing so hard?
DS also has asthma and I've been giving him his inhaler 2 puffs at 3 times a day as opposed to the 2 times. His ped said he's too young for cough syrup and says kids don't need it, but he's coughing like a lung is about to come out, and I know the DM in some of the kid's cough syrup will make him drowsy and let him have some rest.
I'm debating on whether or not I should give him some cough syrup. I just want him to get some rest. His cough sounds like it hurts but when I ask him he says he's more tired than anything.
Ngi ne themba - I have hope.
