My 2 week old DD2 has developed a cough in the last day or 2 and I can't decide if I should try and get her seen by the GP today (mostly cos it's Friday and it's harder to get seen at the weekend).
She mostly coughs after a feed (BF) and retches a little. Her breathing is sometimes a little fast but I'm not sure if that's just her dreaming when asleep or being agitated wanting a feed when awake. She's a bit fussy at the breast but that may be because she's a bit snotty or because she's just wanting comfort rather than milk.
Just concerned because of the high bronchiolitis rates at the mo. Thoughts welcome. Thank you. xx
Hmm, midwife might be right but many don't have the training to diagnose tongue tie especially if posterior. Can you get to a breastfeeding support group and try to find a trained lactation consultant there?
Sorry, I had meant to ask if she had other symptoms or you had other reason to think she might have a viral infection - it sounds like you do. I'm certainly no expert, just with my DS reflux symptoms caused by tongue tie kicked in at about 10 days or 2 weeks. Of course you should take her to the GP if you're concerned.
