DD is now onto the coughing part of this cold. I don't think it's coming from her lungs. More from post nasal drip, but it seems like she doesn't "think" to cough. I can hear the gurgle in her throat ( it makes me want to clear my own throat ), but she doesn't seem to want to cough it up. She'll cough once in awhile or when she's crying, but it seems to interfere with our feeding. I'm able to bulb her nose, but am I able to bulb her mouth in the same way? I've been trying, but I don't know if I'm getting mucus or spit and she hates it ( as would I in her situation ). I just don't know how to help her along in clearing things up. BTW she's 6wks old if that will affect any of your suggestions.

Also, I wanted to add that I've tried laying her on my thighs and patting her back which didn't seem to work either.

Her little cry is breaking my heart
