So, I think Ella has a mild cold. Her nose isn't really running and she's acting normal. The only symptom she's having right now is coughing. She's not coughing during the day, just during her naptime and bedtime when she sleeps.
It is to the point where it's keeping her from sleeping soundly. I don't know what to do! Are cough medicines okay to give to a 2 year old?
She literally coughs all night, every few minutes. It has to be keeping her from getting a good night's sleep. It's for sure affecting my sleep (which I know is not all that important) because I will hear her coughing throughout the whole night on the baby monitor.
I want to do something for her, but I don't want to give her medicine that won't do anything. So, is a cough suppressant helpful? I put the humidifier up in her room and it hasn't helped a bit. It's so odd that she's showing no other symptoms except a rather productive cough. And she doesn't cough during the day....just at night. I'm sure it's because she's lying down. I guess she has some stuff in there.
She's still the happiest little girl I know. I just want my baby to get a good night's sleep.Any ideas? What has worked for you?
