Hey 7 month old has been coughing quite a bit since yesterday. Its still not much and no other symptoms. He is active n happy till now. No fever. I was just wondering if i could do anything to sooth his throat before this develops into a full blown cough with fever??

Anything natural, homemade that can help him? Just looking for ways to avoid medication. He hasnt been sick till now (thank god, touch wood) and i just want to see if i can help this naturally....

My DS (6 months) Had his first cough a couple of weeks ago, and I ended up taking him to the doctor as it was making him sick, and she put him on antibiotics, as it had turned into a chest infection. The poor thing was very bunged up and wheezy, I would not leave it too long if it seems to be getting worse. Hope he feels better soon!
