My DD has her first cough, and it's a bad one! She hit 100.4 degrees today, and my husband and I are trying to help her get through it the best we can and allow her body to fight it naturally. My consulting nurse recommended warm diluted apple juice to get her more fluids and to help with the cough. DD is exclusively breast fed (aside from rice cereal and baby food) and I intend to keep it that way. I've heard that giving juice to young children isn't the best as its quite sugary. Thoughts? Any other recommendations on how to help a baby through a bad cough - ie, helping them sleep? We have a vaporizor and have occasionally used Infant's Tylenol to help her sleep.
