Answer: While your baby is suffering from a dry cough, it can be quite difficult to continue with the regular feeding and sleeping routine that your baby may otherwise have been used to. Here are a few tips that will help you ease your baby’s discomfort: Try and keep your baby well hydrated. While your baby is sick, the biggest source of comfort for your little one, if you have not weaned your baby yet, is your breast. Let your baby feed as many times as possible. Hold your baby closely in your arms and help to make your little one comfortable. Offer your breast as many times as your baby wants. Staying hydrated will help to prevent further dryness in your baby’s airways and will help him get better faster. Falling asleep while suffering from a dry cough can be close to an impossible situation. You can help your baby sleep by making the environment a little sleep friendly. Close the curtains and cancel out any noise. Make the room as dim as possible and ask all your family members to be quiet or keep the volume low. Keep your baby dressed in loose and comfortable clothes that are ideal for sleep time and keep the bed or baby cot comfortable and clean. You can rock or pat your baby to sleep while holding your baby in your arms or lie down with your baby for a feed and nurse your little one to sleep. While your baby is sleeping, make sure you stay around and monitor your little one. Dry coughing can increase the risk of choking, so it is important that you do not leave your baby unattended at any times, even if your baby is safely sleeping in the baby cot. Stay around and in case your baby wakes up coughing, pick up your little one in your arms and gently pat the back. this home remedy may work out try: cumin Water: 1 to 2 tsp of cumin seedsWater Add some water in a pan and set it to boil.Once the water starts to boil, add the cumin seeds. Let it boil for a few minutes and remove from heat once done. Set it aside to cool.give baby 2 spoons in 4 hrs..

    thank u so much mam

Answer: do you feed your baby in sleeping position? If so stop it immediately. i have the same problem with my kid and i thought he is doing it playfully. but one day it was so worse that he started spitting up after cough. while in sleeping position milk travel back to trachea and stays there and make it irritating and causes dry cough. my doc suggested to feed him upright even in the night.. from then i could nitice the difference in my baby. he dont cough much these days and also dont feed bananas while baby has cough. it makes cough worse.
