My 4 month old daughter has just developed a phlegmy cough but has no fever. We have been staying with my mother since july 27th as I recouperate from surgery. She coughs a little trhough out the day but I attribute that to her constant drooling. Now at night and a little during her naps her cough sounds as though she needs to hack up a loogie. It doesn't seem to be interupting her sleep but as for me I look like the living dead. I gave her a warm bath tonight and massaged baby vics into her back and chest. She isn't running a fever so no baby tylenol. Also, her breathing seems to be just fine. She is eating well and is still very playful and happy. She really doesn't start to cough until she has been asleep for about 6 hours. This is my first baby and it makes me very nervous. She has her 4 month check up Tuesday, should we wait until we see the doc then or should we go now? Any help would be appreciated. Also, my 5 year ols niece has had a phlegmy cough but her mother and mine says it's b/c of her allergies so I don't think that my baby caught anything from her.
