8 month old little girl I'm caring for has a cough and sounds croaky. The cough is minor and it sounds like she needs a really good cough to loosen what sounds like phlegm (tmi) on her chest, its sort of rattley(sp?) Does she need to see the GP, she is well and happy, no temperature, feeding and sleeping well.
If she has had the cough a while, it wouldn't hurt to see the doctor . My neice had a persistant cough at that age and had to be tested for cystic fibrosis as it went on for so long, , she just ended up with an inhaler for a while,although generally she was in good health other than the rattley cough but seems to have grown out of it now ( she's 3). Its probably nothing, but it should be checked out.
