Yes, sounds normal for Croup. I hope that your baby gets better soon.

do you have an official diagnosis of croup?  The same virus that causes croup causes laryngitis in many.  Keep ibuprofen in them to reduce the inflmation of the airway/throat, steam up the bathroom, stand in the open freezer or go outside with them bundled up if its cold out.

We had to take him to the hospital on Monday night and they gave him a breathing treatment and steriods to help, but he wasn't getting better. we took him back to the doctor today and he prescribed little man some antibiotics and steriods and breathing treatments. I hope he gets better soon. it's so sad to hear him wheezing and crying with his poor broken cry.

Thank you all for your replies!
