Cough : We are in the middle of the RSV season. That is the most common cause of cough right now in children. A 2 month with a severe cough needs to see the doctor to check for this and other infections. Your baby is too young to let this infection run its course. Testing oxygen levels and listening to the lungs for infection is essential. Let's go soon!

Not in the US: In the United States, cough and cold preparations are not approved and generally not used in children under the age of 2 years.

Cough: Would seek the advice of the pediatrician. The baby is too young to communicate and you may not recognize the signs of something serious.
