DS (2yrs) has developed a thick, wet cough but it doesn't seem very productive. Any tips on loosening up the junk in his chest?

My aunt said they do something in her hospital called cupping? They cup their hand and pat the back of the patients back a certain way, kind of in a circular, repetative motion, to break the mucus up so they can cough it out.

My kids both had breathing issues when they developed colds (until recently) I found if I didn't start using a nebulizer with albuteral, they would turn asmathic. I would try other more natural remedies, and it always got really bad. Especially with my older son. So now, if they have a tight or unproductive cough, I don't mess around. Out comes the nebby.
