Baby 7 MS coughing and runny nose no fever eating well, cough is dry. Any suggestions?

Cough. Your baby's cough is due to a post nasal drip. Use a bulb syringe to suck up the mucus. Rinse nostrils with salt water nose drops several times a day. Use the vaporizer especially when sleeping. Elevate the child' mattress and push fluids.

According . According to the national institute of health center for complimentary and alternative medicine, there is no evidence that shows that echinacea is protective against illness or speeds recovery. It was a very popular supplement 5 years ago, but as research started to show that it was ineffective in a adults and especially children, it began to fall out of favor. I would not recommend using it children. The best methods for treating congestion in an infant/toddler are saline nasal drops, nasal suctioning with a bulb syringe and a cool or warm mist humidifier. There are no safe cough or cold medications for children under 4 years of age. If your child seems to be having difficulty breathing, call their doctor right away. Anytime a child has difficulty breathing (respiratory distress), they need immediate medical attention. The signs of respiratory distress are: -rapid breathing (more than 60 times a minute) -grunting or gasping with breathing -flaring of the nostrils -working hard and using extra muscles to breathe such as sucking in at the neck or under the rib cage -blue or dusky coloring -change in speech or level of alertness.
