Is it unsafe to for a 9 month old to have a Vicks vaporizer with the vaposteam in the water? My baby has a cough and congestion that keeps her awake.
I never use it: I find any scented material is more of an air pollutant in small kids than helpful. There airways are different than adults and often become more congested and or drain more when fragrances are used. I basically never recommend it. I can remember the stinky stuff my mom used when I was young, and still hate the smell.
Avoid Cold medicines: Cough in young children is extremely frustrating for parents. Unfortunately cough medications used in adults don't work in children. Decongestants in combination with cough medications can actually be harmful. Using guafenesin may be helpful to help secretions stay loose. Increasing fluid intake and humidity in the air can definitely help. Honey (for kids over 12 months) may be a natural remedy.
When my 9 month old baby cries he will begin to cough, is this normal? Sometimes it seems like it takes his breath away.
Some babies or: children have very sensitive cough and gag reflexes and may be triggered by very benign things like crying. As long as there is no wheezing, difficulty breathing or color change, this doesn't sound like anything too concerning in and of itself. However, if it persists, you may want to discuss this with your child's pediatrician.
My 9 month old baby has a cough that we can't seem 2 get rid of. What can I do to get rid of this cough so he can get better?
Cough remedy: Suck out the mucus in his nose with a bulb syringe, use saline nose drops 4 times daily, take him into the washroom, turn on the hot shower and let him breath in the hot steam. Elevate his matress with a wedge and keep the vaporizer on where he sleeps. If the cough does not improve in several days check him over by his pediatrician push fluids, reduce milk.
My 9 month old baby keeps coughing at night for the past few days and seems to have no cough during the day why is it only when he's in deep sleep?
Baby's night cough: Coughing with a cold is often worse when lying down and during sleep because the muscles and tissues of the upper airway become relaxed, mucus drips down our nose and throat, and we don't clear our airway of secretions as well during sleep. However infants with worsening cough or difficulty breathing must be evaluated for more serious conditions, such as pertussis, bronchiolitis, or pneumonia.See 2 more doctor answers
