In brief: No

It can be a reaction to irritants in their environment like dust,fragerence, cleaning fumes, etc.
It can also be a sign of illness. I would call your kids doc and discuss the issue.

In brief: No

Seek a medical attention! Newborn infants are not expected to have a real cough.
They often sneeze though.
