This started with my DD 6 getting a fever. It domino effected over the next week, with sneezing and flu like symptoms. 3 and a half weeks of coughing later... my DD 6 is getting over it fine, my DS 5 is still having night time attacks but not vomiting any more, my DD 3 and my DD 5mo are both coughing throughout the day and having attacks/vomiting at night. I keep waiting for them to show signs of improvement, but nothing. Took them to the doc. He listened to their lungs and said they were too clear to have pertussis. Suggested that the 4 may have allergies/colds due to wood stove. He suggested giving the two younger ones cough syrup. I am breastfeeding DD 4mo and giving DD 3 cherry bark remedy, cod liver oil, no sugar diet and lots of sunshine. I am scared for my babies. Any suggestions are welcome.
