I had the same problem, I just did home remedies until the 2nd day when it became a wet cough, turned out he had some croup.

Cold moist air will help. Too young for meds or honey. If it gets bad I would see the ped.

Re: my 4 month old has a cough :(

there are no over the counter meds that you can give him nor will a doctor prescribe meds for a cough. What has worked for us is a cool air humidifer and try propping him up a little while he is sleeping so the mucus doesn't drain so much in his throat. Goodluck!! Oh, I know elderberry syrup works great for coughs but I'm not sure if a 4 month old can take elderberry syrup?

He's teething! I just felt one on the bottom. duh! He hasnt been sleeping well and now the cough. I shouldve put it together.

I did get a humidifier yesterday. It didnt help DS much but it did help DD cough. so we will keep it for when the kids are sick. she gets coughs pretty often
