Quoting ksinclair:Is it a true cough? When my little one was about that age, he would cough because it was something he discovered he could do. It was just another sound. It sounded like a true, regular cough, but there was nothing wrong with him. He still does it every once in a while. I would have the pedi check her out to be sure though.

Quoting newmommy2ethan:My 6 month old started doing that a few months ago too. I was so scared until my pedi told me that he has asthma. Maybe you should ask yours abouth that. I got a breathing machine for him and after 2-4 treatments it usually clears up...Hope she feels better soon!!
Poor baby. Try rolling up a bath towel or two and put it under the head of her matress to kind of keep her head elevated to help her drain and breath a little better. The Vicks on the bottom of the feet with socks on really works for a cough, but I think I would make sure with the pedi first if it is okay to do that, I don't think it would probably hurt her, but as young as she is, I personally would rather ask first. I sure hope she's feeling better soon!
