    Default Can 5 month old get croup?

    Dd is 5 months and when she woke up for her 2:00 feed I noticed her wheezing and doing the seal bark. She fed ok and is now back asleep but I am listening to her breathe in the monitor, she's very wheezy, and moany. Do I just monitor until morning?

    Could you maybe call nurse on call to see what they recommend? I am not sure about croup as my kids have never had it, but any issues with breathing I am extra cautious (DD is asthmatic). If you feel comfortable monitoring until morning go for it, but if you are concerned/it gets worse I would call nurse on call or head to hospital (or home visiting GP)

    My DS has croup at 6 months. Quite scarey...first thought was whopping cough. Id get him to the docs. If it is croup its really not that bad. My DS has had croup about 4 times (hes 2.5 years now). It generally only lasts for a couple of days and just keep him on neurophen. We were told 5ml every 3 hours when he was 6 months.
    Does he have a temp or any other symptoms?
    Just to be sure though id get him to the docs.
