LO's fever finally broke and today he actually ate (hasnt eaten in 2 days) not that it maters cuz he threw up everything a few times by coughing so hard =(



Hes coughing so hard hes puking, and choking and gasps for air. I called the doc last night about his fever and mentioned the cough, im gonna call again tomorrow if its not better but what can I do to help him get thru the night? Its almost potty time so i figured while were in there waiting for him to go ill have the steam on but any other ideas? I have no vicks on hand so thats not an option, or honey =/ but what about just some warm milk??

if the fever comes back the milk will curd in his stomache and make him throw up more even without coughing..id give milk a day before he gets it again. or at least 24hrs. Warm bath might help him relax and the extra heat should. any pedialite?
