In brief: No Medicine BUT.....

There are no medicines for cough in a four month old but if your baby has cold symptoms with a persistent cough the possibilities are numerous including pertussis so i think it is very important that you visit with your pediatrician now.

Deeper cough could be a variant of wheezing-acute viral bronchiolitis. See your pediatrician.

In brief: ? Feeding`

If bottle fed, any form of cow's milk formula can do this.
Try nutramigen. If breast fed, then see your pediatrician.
