So my son has been diagnosed with whooping cough turns out the immunisations don't actually immunise? And there's no cure just have to wait 3 months for it to go? Bloody brilliant! Anyone's children had it and got any tips?

Get small plastic pots distributed round the house to catch the vomit.

Can you teach him to breathe in through his nose? When the spasm strikes breathing through your nose can be the only thing that gets it under control.

Don't bother with cough syrups. They don't work in the right place to help.
