Re: Ackk.. I think my LO has croup!

DS gets this a lot in the cooler seasons - I think for him it is from allergies...
he would walk into our room in the middle of the night - with that awful sounding cough - it was really scary to wake up to!
I put him in the bathroom with the hot water running to make steam like pp said - just be sure not to leave them in there alone - i worry about water burns, I guess! He gets really scared bc he can't breathe from it. So i read him a book or something to keep him in there.
If it is a cool night outside, letting them go outside at night is good before bed, too.
humidifier @ night, too like pp said. All u can do is ride it out!
