My almost 5 month old has a cough (flem cough). He seems happy and is feeding well, however it is disturbing his sleep.
Is there anything I can do / use?
Do you think a vaporiser will help?

I swear by my vaporizer. I have a Vicks one and just use a small amount of Vicks liquid (can't remember what it's called) with water. One thing I will say is make sure you air the room out during the day or wipe down the walls etc after use as I didn't and ended up with mould on the ceiling. I also would rub baby balsam on his chest at night and also on bottom of his feet covered with socks.
Hope this helps

Thanks all. I used to use the vaporiser for ds1 but I wasnt sure if the recommendations have changed. Dh just turned it on now for him.

And be careful using it!!! DD has had a bad cough, I started using the Vicks humidifier in the room and two nights ago, the room had so much "vapor" it was dripping down the walls - and some of the moisture got to an electrical plug board, shorted it and we blew a fuse at 4am! My husbands an electrician and I got a long lecture about how dangerous that could have been, we're lucky it was just a blown fuse. Maybe be extra diligent about where in the room u place the humidifier.
