Coughing toddler: bad coughs t worry about
I don't worry so much about a dry cough as I do a chesty, phlegmy cough . Over the years, I've only ever had to take one child to the doctor for a really bad cough and that was our oldest son who was just two months old and ended up having a touch of pneumonia. That was scary.
Other times when I called the doctor's office, they'd give me guidelines to go by and I think one was if the cough lasted two weeks because there was really nothing they could do.
What has been your experience with really bad coughs?
Bub did have a dry cough a short while back that worried me but it cleared up. It just took a LONG time.
