My babe is 4months and for awhile now has always had a cough. I have noticed it for a long time, but it wasnt happening enough to be concerned. Then he had a cold around xmas and it seemed worse, but made sense. He's not had the cold now for at least a week but is coughing LOTS throughout the day. Its a dry cough. Almost sounds fake. Yet, it doesn't SEEM like he does it for attention. My MIL thinks its from reflux (he spits up almost every time i BF him - and dr. wanted to put him on zantac but i declined - since he is gaining STEADILY and doesn't seem to be bothered or upset when he spits up/burps etc...)
She also thinks it could be because he has a dairy sensitivity and i eat TONS of dairy.
I've also heard it could be a sign of teething. He has been drooly for the last couple weeks - but i don't see/feel anything. The dr. also didn't notice any buds.
Does anyone else have a baby that coughs a lot?
