    Default Whooping Cough , has your bub had it?

    My bub is 5months old and in the last three weeks came into contact with someone who has whooping cough and only just found out today. She has had a cough that sounds like she is chokeing on her spit for two days now. I'm taking her to the doctor but was just wondering what your stories were nd if your baby has had it under 6months and what it was like? TIA

    I have no experience but I just wanted to say it ****s me to tears when people who are sick expose other people's babies to their germs. I'm quite angry on your behalf

    I hope your bub is ok.

    My niece had it at 6 months old (fully immunised though) and she recovered ok with it. Her cough lasted several months however.

    I too am very angry for you stupid people out sick or sending their kids out sick. I get very angry at this! Especially whooping cough

    I hope your bub is ok xxx

    How can you be angry at someone who didn't know they had it? They only found out today!

    Although, even if they were just coughing and thought they had a cold - which is how WC starts, then they shouldn't be going near babies. It just isn't worth it.

    How did you go OP? What did the doctors say? Is your bubs immunised at all?

    My baby had it- at 7 week- nasty cough for 2 weeks and we saw a couple of GPs who all said it was a cold. She stopped breathing at home at 7 weeks of age and we revived her- spent a long time in ICU the a Paeds ward. Young young babies don't have the typical "whoop" sound. My poor mum found out a few weeks after Miss Moo was in hospital that she had whooping cough as did 8 of her students.

    Taking her to the doctors tomorrow morning, she doesn't have the 'typical cold' before the cough, she sneezes a but but that's about it with her cough. She does go red a bit :/
    yes I work at pathology and it's amazing how angry people get when you ask them to wear a mask so they don't infect anyone else in the room!

    It can present differently with adults vs babies. Good luck, I hope it isn't serious.
