They won't offer much , try raising her cot head and vaporiser/humidifer

Is her breathing rate ok?

Disenchanted3 Mon 20-Jul-09 17:16:22

Yes shes fine in every other respect, just a very consistant throaty cough.

Dd has been like that, same thing, had SF, finished tamiflu yesterday but still had horrible cough, I said she sounded like a dog with TB. She has hardly slept because of it unless in a sling sucking my finger BUT it is a lot better today whereas yesterday I was starting to panic about chest infection or something.

Disenchanted3 Mon 20-Jul-09 17:23:39

yes, shes waking herself up all night,

hopefully it will calm tomorrow then, how old is your DD indith?

Indith Mon 20-Jul-09 17:27:04

7 months she is still pretty grumpy but the cough is more "normal", yesterday she sounded so hoarse.

Disenchanted3 Mon 20-Jul-09 17:28:29

Its horrid, her whole little face goes pink she coughs so much,

A december baby then

Indith Mon 20-Jul-09 17:32:31

yup, you've just forgotten us all <theatrical wail> grin

I know of four five year olds who have had swine flu followed the next week by tonsillitis, so it may be worth calling the GP to ask them to check her for a secondary infection.

Hope she is better soon.

Could be a secondary infection after such a strong virus as SF for a little one, I would call GP and voice your concerns.
