    Default Toddler with bad cough - help me help her sleep!

    She's getting baby panadol at the moment, for the fever.. Will try administering it in warm water (tonight if she wakes again).. Thanks for this!

    Default Toddler with bad cough - help me help her sleep!

    It's an old wives tale... But I have done it & it did work. Slice up an onion, put it in a bowl and leave under the bed/cot. Doesn't leave a great odor in the room but it worked. It's just horrible when they are coughing like that of a night!! Hope you all get some more rest tonight.

    Have a sippy cup of water handy, may help.
    Can she suck a throatie or butter menthol?
    also sometimes if the air is too cold it can aggravate coughing.
    Hope this helps...no fun when your children are sick

    Second thoughts maybe not the cough lolly, at 23 months she may choke. Dont know if it would work but u could try dissolving a cough lolly in a little boiling water, allow it to cool and then she could sip it. Just a suggestion. Hope she gets better soon

    Hot water with honey and lemon dissolved into it.
    When DD had a bad cough this warm honey drink was the only thing that worked
    If you don't have lemon just honey is ok too.
    Hope it gets better soon it's so horrible hearing or babies cough xxxxxx

    Jo7, I'm sorry to hear your LO has been coughing for so long - poor little mite But just a thought - I know you've been to the GP already but it might be worth going back & getting a whooping cough test done. Any of us can get it, even if vaccinated, and speaking from experience (as someone who had it - I didn't realise my vaxx had expired), that cough just does not go away AND I vomitted a few times during a coughing fit... I also got a sinus infection in the middle of it, which was a red herring & made one GP think it wasn't WC, but another heard my cough & decided it was worth testing for - just as well.

    Hope your LO gets better soon!
