Quick question for y'all, and I know the first answer will be to "Call the doctor," but I've already done that and I just need some peace of mind since they're closed through the holiday.
My daughter is 6.5 months old and caught a little cold around Thanksgiving. Her only symptoms at the time were a runny nose, some chest congestion, and a phlegmy cough. No fever or appetite changes. The runny nose has since gone away, but she's still got that phlegmy rattle in her chest and a bit of a whistle when she inhales. The cough gets much worse at night to the point that she's losing sleep, but she doesn't appear to be struggling for breath or in any sort of pain at all. She's an incredibly happy baby, so maybe she's just not vocalizing her pain, but I would imagine that if it was really bothering her, she'd cry, right?
Called the doc today, the on-call nurse said to just keep an eye out for worsening symptoms, but do any of you have an recommendations for how I might be able to help her sleep better at night? The cool-mist vaporizer isn't doing the trick, nor does saline spray. Poor little thing!
