My 16-month-old daughter seems to have developed a cough. She coughs more then usual during the day but the past few nights she wakes up with coughing attacks and a few times she almost sounds like she might throw up. I noticed tonight while nursing her to sleep that she also had a runny nose and her forehead was a little warmer then usual. She is getting a few teeth in so she always seems to have a higher chance of being sick during these times.

Anyway, I thought I would ask you wonderfully smart mommies out there if you have any suggestions on foods that help with a cough or homeopathic remedies or anything that seemed to work for you. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!!!

Sitting in a hot steamy bathroom helps. Also a humidifier at night.
