My 6m DS2 has a horrible chesty cough and is wheezing too. He was up at 5am but I'd been awake since 4am as I woke up to check on him!
I've done all of the things you mention. I don't think there's anything else you can do other than ride it out.
Personally I HATE the winter. DS1 was ill constantly throughout the winter for two years in a row until he built up immunity.
All of us had a tummy bug just 10 days ago and previous to that DS2 had an ear infection. I don't know about you but it feels like they're constantly ill. But I know once we got to DS1's third winter he only got ill ONCE. Oh yes, ONCE...so only a couple more years to go!
hi bebemoo. My sympathies... my 7 mo DD also has a bad chesty cough. She has had some coughing fits that have made her throw up, she isn't sleeping well, and we are all tired and miserable! I've taken her to the doctors and got all the advice you list, and 'hopefully it will pass in a few days'...
Thanks for commiserating. We went to the gp this morning just to double check it wasn't a chest infection. And Gp said it wasn't which is good, but it is so trying 'riding it out.' Especially when they're so miserable and you cannot explain anything.
