In brief: Could be many things

Go back to your pediatrician and talk with them about this.
This is most likely something simple, but let the doctor help you figure it out.

In brief: Many causes

If chest radiograph normal, cough-variant asthma most common cause of cough.
17 week old young but not impossible. Ge reflux, aberrant innominate artery, and subglottic stenosis. Other causes. If reflux occurring several hours after eating , medication for reflux will not work, slow gastric emptying. Sometimes endoscopy necessary to exclude vascular anomaly affecting airway.
