URI: Coughing while sleeping is very common in infants. The nasal secretions drip to the back of the throat, causing a cough. As long as there is no persistent difficulty breathing your child should be fine. No over-the-counter medications are recommended for this. You can try to use a bulb suction and nasal saline prior to feeds if your child begins to eat less.
