Relief for coughing?

My 12 month old has developed a pretty awful cough. He's no longer congested, no runny nose, just the cough. He was up so many times last night that he slept in til 9 (he normally wakes at 6:30/7). I'm nursing him now and he's still so tired he's falling back asleep again...

What can I do for him at this age to get him get rid of it? I run a humidifier in his room (cool mist), is there anything else that would help?

 Nothing OTC for little guys.  If he was congested, I'd suggest saline solution and propping him up while he sleeps.  If it worsens call your pedi and see what they recommend.

I agree with the above poster. We are going through the same this weekend as well. I just make sure she also has plenty of fluids.

He's over 1 year so you could try honey.

Has anyone used the Hylands cough syrup? I know that nothing with actual medication can be used until he's older, but I'm skeptical about trying the homeopathic stuff without having any experience with it.

We use hylands teething tablets and swear by them, but I haven't heard anything about the Hylands cough syrup.  Our ped told us it prob wouldn't work, but I dont think it would hurt to try.
