Re: !!!PLEASE HELP BABY HAS CROUP!!!

Well, is he showing any signs of laboring breathing?

Check his resp rate (count breaths in 30 secs and multiply by 2), and then looks at his chest when he's breathing. Does he cave in under his ribs when he inhales? Seem agitated? Might help your doc determine better if he needs to be seen

Hope he's on the mend and you don't have to go in!!
