Sick Baby :(

Hi fellow moms- I have a beautiful 9month old who has been sick with a cold for the past six days. It started with a runny stuffy nose and has now progressed to this horrible cough that sounds like it's trying to break up phlem in her chest. In addition, she has a slight temp of 101 (rectal). Of course, she is also teething on top of everything else. Because of this violent cough, she's really not sleeping and moans after a bout of coughing, which tells me that her chest throat are probably hurting her. Also, she hasn't been able to...

2 1/2 Month Old with Bronchiolitis

I'm not sure if I spelled it right, but we took my 2 month old to the doctor with a very bad cold and cough. He said she had bronchiolitis. Can anyone tell me what I can do to make my daughter a little more comfortable & if I should calm down & not be too worried. I've gotten a vaporizer and some saline drops for her nose. We just can't get her to cough up the "yucky" stuff. Actually we can't get it out before she swallows it again. Help... does anyone have any suggestions?

Best Medicine for 6 Month Old

My 6 month old has a runny nose and a cough for the third time this year. The first and second time I took her to the pediatrician she told me to give her saline drops and let it run its course. A lot of old school moms are saying no, give her Benadryl or Castor oil. What is best?

Always Stuffy Nose

My 2 1/2 year old daughter has been having this stuffy nose problem for past 3-4 weeks or so. She's not sick and doing well, but her nose is always stuffy. Not runny or have cold symptoms, but I guess something must be bothering her nose. It's not stuffy 24 hours, but she usually has something in her nose that bothers her and sometimes it's hard for me to watch her being so bothered by her stuffy nose. She hates the saline spray, so when I try to use that on her, she panics and gets upset. And even when I do get that in her nose, it...

Is This Allergies?

My 4-year-old has always had "issues" that seem to be allergy-related, but never anything that seemed to fit the classic definition of allergies. Since the spring, though, she's been chronically congested. And I don't mean the runny slimy type of congestion, I mean like rocks in her nose. I started her on Claritin- I noticed a difference at first, but then it stopped being effective. At her check-up in August, I asked the doctor if she had allergies and he said yes, it was definitely allergies that was causing the congestion. He gave...

Common Cold Remedies?

Hello Everyone, I'm sure this is a common question but I wanted to ask. My 6 1/2 mo old son has the common cold. I'm still breastfeeding and after he eats he has to cough badly. He usually ends up vomiting because there is flem stuck in his throat. My main question is: How can I get rid of that flem, quickly. He isn't dehydrated and he's not vomiting the whole meal up. I have tried saline drops through the nose. His nose is also very stuffy. Can anyone help me with a good remedy that has helped them? Thank you very much!
