Any advice for a five month of with a cough? I had a cold about 2 weeks ago. I thought it had by-passed the baby but she has had a little runny nose and cough since then. How can I help her get over this cough? Thanks!

breastmilk, breastmilk, and more breastmilk!

now that we're on baby #3 he gets a lot more of these little things with older sibs who have contact with other kids.

if your babe's congestion gets bad, you can put a little breastmilk in her nose, but as long as she can breathe fine, just nurse her all the time. your milk is Super Milk and will help her recover fast
