In brief: Baby with cough
You need to use saline nose drops followed by gentle suction and for loose poop, if it is watery then you have to stop the formula or brest feeding and use clear liquids andelectrolyte solution, till the loose poop stop.
If it is not watery anfd soft then you just give extra pedialyte and continue feeding.Ir the symptoms persist consult youe pediatrician.
