I have a 2 month old baby girl, she started having a lot of cogh an congestion and was throwing up after she ate (breastmilk)so we took her to the doctor. Doctor diagnosed her w/mild bronchitis and gave her albuterol with a nebulizer. Doctor said take her to hospital if trouble breathing, not eating, or high fever. She has not had a fever at all and she is eating some. We are feeding her less and more often so she won't throw up and it seems to be working she is still eating less than ususal but she is eating some. The only thing I don't like is that every time she wakes up she gets this cough attacks where she will cough continiously for about 40 times in a row and can't seem to stop, and when she finally stops she starts crying( i think from being tired of coughing so much) after that she will be fine for hours until she eats and falls asleep again and we do it all over again. Is this cough attack a sympom of something else or is it part of the bronchitis, and is there anything to help her feel more comfortable.
Ah, poor little thing. We had our bouts of that stuff. Keep her hydrated & follow the peds directions & neb based on what they have told you. It's hard, not too much you can do, I would try to keep Cam calm though & not let him cry if I could help it, otherwise that could set off a cough attack & the throwing up, gagging...it's awful. I kept him elevated too to help with the congestion. Nebs are great, then I would lay rub his back to help break up the crud, he would cough bad after nebs somtimes, but it helps open up the airway. Lots of hugs help too, maybe you more than her, but still they help.
