Hi Moms, my 26 days babygirl has a wet cough. I took her to a chemist yesterday and was told nothing can be given to such an age, breastfeed is an only cure. Thanks Jacque

Is it fine to rub her with vicks maybe on her chest?

Oh ok thanks about the vicks advice Sarah. She still has loads of appetite for her breastmilk even now while she coughs, but I noticed she sleeps lesser time than usual now.

I would not, her skin and airway are still so delicate, it could really burn. Also, vicks is more for stuffiness, not coughing. My concern is what would cause a wet cough in such a young baby? Is it possible she may be aspirating some of her feedings. I would seek the advice of her pediatrician.
