Coughing after a clod is a good sign, it usually means everything is clearing up and getting out of the baby. The two things I suggest to relieve some of the symptoms are to make sure you have a blanket rolled under the crib mattress to elevate the baby while they are sleeping. Also, my sister suggests getting a humidifier that you can add the vics to, I haven't tried this yet but am looking into getting it soon. My baby is 9 months old and has the same cold that seems to be going around. Unfortunately this particular cold seems to be lasting quite some time. I know that doctors know what they are talking about, but as a mom it sucks to listen to them when they say everything has to run it's course. I wish I had a magic fix for you, good luck with everything.
