My daughter had the same symptoms when she was a bout a month old. The Dr told me that they are still trying to clear out their lungs and stuff from being in the womb and as long as there was no fever not to worry about it. He did recommend a cool air humidifier at night, a nasal aspirator and some little noses saline drops. Hope baby feels better soon!

The best thing you can do is take your baby to the doctor. Typically coughs get worse at night, and a cool air humidifier should be in his/her room. We cannot tell if it is whooping cough, croupe, or a cough from post nasal drip, or a tickle in the throat. Good luck, and call your pediatrician.
