How is she eating?: If she is nursing or taking her bottle ok and wetting her diapers normally, you have very little to worry about. Babies with colds are best not treated with cold and cough medications. The side effects can be much worse than what you are treating. If she stops feeding or wetting, she needs to see her doctor. ...Read more

Crying (Definition)

Crying in infancy is described as a loud, high-pitched sound made by infants in response to certain situations. Infants have a cry reflex that is a normal response to some stimuli, such as pain or hunger. Older children and adults cry for emotional reasons such as pain, fear, sadness, or frustration.

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. ...Read more

Beginning stages of the croup. Some stridor and seal barking cough only when crying/coughing. Raspy. No fever. What can I do? 14m baby.

Beginning stages of the croup. Some stridor and seal barking cough only when crying/coughing. Raspy. No fever. What can I do? 14m baby.

Symptomatic measures: Croup is a viral infection of the upper airway. Antibiotics will not help. Often humidified air--running the shower--or cold air will help. A lot of fluids also. If the stridor is severe or worrisome evaluation by the pediatrician is indicated. Sometimes one dose of a steroid is given to reduce the inflammation/swelling of the airway. Keeping the baby calm until this runs its course will also help ...Read more

See your doctor: This could be merely a common cold with the symptoms you are describing. Saline nose drops and suctioning gently with upright positioning and steamy baths may help to weather this illness. The cough may also represent a phenomena known as bronchiolitis-head cold with some wheezing. Some docs may recommend a nebulizer with medication used in asthma care for the deep cough/wheeze. ...Read more
