Is there anything i can give my 7 month old baby so she can spit mucus out thats making her cough?

Is there anything i can give my 7 month old baby so she can spit mucus out thats making her cough?

This sucks: If you find any way to teach a 7 month old to "spit", you'll win a nobel prize in medicine. They cannot nor can they be taught to do that at that tender age. You have to suck it out for them. If they cough and/or gag on mucous and you can hear it in the back of their throats or in their mouths, take the bulb syringe for nose sucking and use it in mouth & throat. This will clear the secretions. ...Read more

Infancy Colds -: Fill all your bottles with 2 oz of pedialyte-equivalent. Offer one every half hour and allow the baby to refuse. Run a humidifier or vaporizer to add moisture to the air. Cancel any other plans and snuggle with good hand washing reminders for all care-givers.

My  7 month old baby Sounds like she has a lot of phlegm Sounds Like It's hard To swallow and shes coughing Could i Have gotten her sick since im sick?

You both got sick!: Not unusual for mom & baby to catch the same germs at the same time. But you never REALLY know where the germs came from (don't blame yourself!). Of course good habits like washing hands are important all the time. But right now, most important is the baby's symptoms: does she have increased effort breathing? (fast breathing or looks like she's winded)? If so, see doc right away! ...Read more
