I took my son to the doctors about 2 weeks ago because he breathing seemed to rattle, they put him on a decongestant, whicch didnt help much, now his breathing is more wheezy progressing from very light to heavy followed by violent coughing. im waiting for the doc to call me back, anyone else having these problems (he started daycare about 3 months ago, and I understand sick gets passed around a lot there, but its so frequent and his appitite is very affected when he doesnt feel well that it worries me)

Angela, does your little one possibly have asthma? My son was so sick the first year of his life because of daycare. Also get a vaporizer and run that as close to the baby's crib and you could also rub vick's vapor rub on the chest and back. It is all day or just in the morning? Are the lungs clear when you went to the doctor?

Quoting Angela:

ps the doctor said to come it tomorrow but since his breathing is so labord should I even wait or take him to the ER


IF YOU ARE WORRIED GET HIM TO THE ER DONT LET THEM PUSH YOU AROUND EITHER... also any chance you can go to another doctor for a second opinion?

If you're worried maybe you should go ahead and take him to the ER. Poor lil sweet pea! I hope that everything works out for the best! Good luck!
