My 3 month old won't stop cry and coughing she is so congested she can't breath or sleep can I give her cough medicine just for the weekend?

No: A 3 month old baby can not have cough medicine. You can steam up the shower and then sit with her in the bathroom, you can elevate the head of the crib she sleeps in or even let her sleep strapped into the car seat. You can use nasal saline drops and suction. Please take her temperature and if it is more than 101 F or she is not eating her milk well, take her to the ER. ...Read more

I have a two year old son who weighs 26 lbs. He has a cough that keeps him from falling asleep. Is there cough medicine i could give him and how much?

Honey or codeine.: We prefer not to give cough suppressants to children that young. Often a teaspoon of honey will soothe the throat so that the cough is better. If the cough occurs hours after the child is asleep and especially if it is so severe that it induces vomiting then i would be concerned about cough variant asthma and would have the child checked by your doctor. ...Read more
