My 9 month old girl came down a cough and cold last week (Wednesday). It is a hacking cough and can wake her up. I took her to the doctor's on Friday who said it was just a really bad cold. Occasionally she will also throw up. Her top four teeth are also coming in. On Thursday she was really lethargic and just wanted to sleep all day and wanted to be held all night. Every night since Wednesday has been really rough and she's up every 1 - 2 hours. Last night she coughed and vomited twice in the middle of the night. What should I do? Could this be related to an allergy i.e. cheese? or is this related to teething or the cold? I'm not sure what to do or how to make her feel better. She is so congested and we give her saline solution every night, we also have a vaporizer in her room and we have put a wedge under the mattress to put her head on an incline and none of it is working! Any help would be appreciated!
