My 4 month old is coughing quite often. He drools a lot so I'm wondering if it is that. I also just found a bump in his skin next to his rib. So now it is worrying me even more. Anything will help. He has an appointment for a checkup this Friday, but I really need something to ease my mind until then. Everything I read about them coughing alot this early days its serious. Thanks!

2 of my 3 babies got their first teeth at 4 months... early but no too crazy.. the excess drool is probably from the teething... the coughing could be a by product of the excess saliva... the lump however i would have checked...

Thanks! That was my first thought. I made him an appointment and had his bump checked the day I found it. They told me to watch for redness or for it to get bigger. She said it could just be a swollen lymph node. Im a first time mom and everything worries me. Thanks for the reply!
