In brief: See below

It is possible that the cough is from a cold.
Often the cough is due to nasal secretions and good irrigation may help. If symptoms continue or worsen you should return to your doctor as the cold can progress. You should be concerned if baby develops fever, flaring of the nostrils, very fast breathing, or pulling in of the ribs with breathing.
