DD had bronchiolitis at six weeks and at 5.5 mo. Yesterday she had a clear runny nose and very watery eyes. Starting yesterday evening she began coughing quite a bit and wheezing very badly. We took her to the pedi this morning and he said she didn't sound as though she had bronchiolitis or pneumonia. Her cough fluctuates between wet and juicy, or dry and hackish. Sometimes it sounds whiney sometimes not. When she wheezes it sometimes sounds crackly. I feel so bad for her and I'm so worried. I want to make sure it isn't something more than a simple cough/cold.<br><br>
I was even wondering if it might be allergies. We discovered mold on one of our window sills and cleaned that yesterday. We also made sure to get rid of any mold anywhere else in the house today. So, maybe it's an allergic cough. Anyways, if you would kindly give a listen and tell me what you think! I'd really appreciate it. Some of the video sounds like dead air because when we'd try to turn it on right when she'd cough, we'd miss it!<br><br>
One more thing, sometimes she'll go ten minutes without a cough and then spend five minutes coughing. I don't hear any whooping and she can get her breath.<br><br><a href="http://www.zippyvideos.com/6002275074263616/dscf0600/*steve0820" target="_blank">Cough1</a><br><br><a href="http://www.zippyvideos.com/9209699324263686/dscf0601/*steve0820" target="_blank">Cough2</a><br><br>
Sorry for the x-post, I'm just very very worried <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

Yeah, so I just relistened to the coughs I posted, they don't sound nearly as bad as she does in person. Not that I'm trying to make things worse than they are.<br><br>
I talked to my mom and she made me feel better about the situation. DD doesn't have a fever, she's happy, but very tired as she's falling asleep fairly easy. She's nursing plenty. I think I'm just you're run of the mill overly worried, first time mom.
