Re: how to help a baby with a dry cough?

not much you can do. Just a vaporizer, steam, and push fluids. I know I know- juice is bad- esp if its not 100% juice. BUT... when we get a sore throat or dry cough I get some Apricot nectar. Its THICK (and um very very yummy). I use a medicine dropper or medicine cup and give about a tablespoon every 2 hours or so. It coats the throat and is very soothing. Bring her in the bathroom to play every time someone showers/bathes so the steam can help. Add vit C and zinc to everyone. Try soup broth by the teaspoon as well.
