My DD can barely nap cause she has phlegm that she keeps chocking on. She spit some up earlier but I know there is more. I'm going to take her in the bathroom and let it steam up but is there anything else?
It seems like this cough is keeping her from sleeping. Any help is appreciated. She's 17 months if that's any help.
You need to increase fluids to thin out the mucus I would avoid milk products they tend to make mucus worst according to what I learned in college. Call the pediatrician you can find a over the counter medicine that says expectorant not a suppressant to loosen the mucus.
Sleeping with head propped up and a cool mist humidifier also helps
I just took my 8 month old today. He actually got choked on his milk today because of this and puked everywhere. In a way this was a good thing as he got alot of that junk out. The pedi said to just do pedialyte for right now and the humidifier. My Son has strep and a double ear infection to. Hope she feels better soon.
Fever associated with this cough? What color is it? Post nasal drip? Call her pedi-you don't want this turning into bronchitis/pneumonia esp at age 17 months..agree with fluid intake to thin the mucous but she should really be seen esp if it is interrupting her sleep
