My DS usually can sleep thru 6h a nite these days. But for the past two nites, he has been having troubled sleep - kept waking up and getting irritated, scratching his head (a sign of frustration and tiredness), crying until screaming. From the sarong, I tried to move him to our bed, nurse him to make him go back to sleep next to me, but sometimes to no avail. He would then cry till he was completely knocked out. And then a while later, the whole cycle would start again. This morning, he woke up and began coughing. Not once or twice, but many times. Not becos he got choked on this saliva. His cough this morning sounded raspy, with a bit of phlegm. This is the first time this has happened since he was born. He's so young that my hubby and I are not sure if we should take him to the GP. Eventually we didn't take him to GP or PD but will monitor for one more nite. I also try to nurse him more. I think he might have caught the cough from one of our relatives' kids whom we were visiting last Sat. Any advice from mummies who might have experienced this in their young babies before? Do you let the cough ride out naturally? Do you take them to see GP or PD? What kind of medication were you prescribed and did it work? What are the alternatives to medication? Thanks in advance!!!
