Super Mum

I think that’s the only cough syrup that PDs give. If you’re scared to give it too much, how about you give it once first and see whether she’s better? Must be quite tiring for your LO to keep coughing too. Also, avoid air con, second hand smoke/ancestral burning areas, keep her room air moist and cool, ensure she’s well hydrated and fed and that she sleeps well. Hope she gets well soon:)

Thank u so much for ur advise.greatly appreciated.luckily me and hubby are non smokers.☺️☺️

Is she having issue with feeding or sleeping? If not then just continue with the cough med that pd prescribe. For my lo case is wheezing plus phlegm in lungs and affected feeding g so hospitalised for 4 days for nebuliser and oxygen at 5 mths

Hi she drink and sleep as per normal but her cough is crazy

If doctor prescribe then its safe. Then try rubbing vicks for babies at the chest area and feet when sleeping. It helps

Hi! The medicine should be ok if pd prescribed it. Dehumidifier might help him if you sleep in ac room.
