My 6 month old baby has a really bad chesty cough, and it has now lasted over a week. We've been to the doctors and apparently he's too young for the normal antibiotics that they give out for his diagnosis. I've tried calpol, tixylix and ibroprofen but this doesnt seem to be making any difference. He's not keeping down his milk very well and when he does he's then barely drank anything. Has anyone been through the same thing and what have you used?
