Toddler croup symptoms and treatment

Message length 300 characters recommended

We took the little ones to the pediatrician first thing this morning and both were diagnosed with croup. They were both up and down all night long with that horrible barking cough.

They each will take a pill tonight at dinner time that will help open their airways and relieve the coughing. I also have cool mist humidifiers for their rooms and we can just treat the cold symptoms like normal.


Croup usually pops up at night with a cough that sounds like a seal barking. Cold air and a steamy bathroom helps open up the vocal cords and help stop the coughing
