I have alread been to the doctors and they said he has to work through it. My son is absolutely miserable there has to be something I can do to help him. I feel absolutely horrible because he looks at me "like help me mommy". I don't know what I should do. I work for a daycare and this is one of the worst coughs I have heard. Please help

Get a bowl of boiling hot steamy water and hold it under his nice get him to exhale the steam this should clear up his sinuses a bit and maybe help the little guy a bit.give him plenty of water and a warm bath it will do the same as the steamy water but also will help him feel better and give him his daily needed clean :)

Also honey in a hot drink before bed helps my boy out a lot! Also a cool mist humidifier,I brought it for my son and it really did wonders and was very inexpensive too!

Poor little guy I hate that look! When my son was really sick and I was doing all I knew what to do and all the doctor told me too but he still would look up and me like "mommy help me please" and I can't I felt hopeless and tried everything to help him!

I hope this helps him also I know a little snuggle on the couch with mommy rubbing his back and watching the wiggles made my boy feel a bit better even though he still had a cough.

Good luck to you and your boy,hope this helped :)
