Re: 6 month old with congestion and coughing

I'm sorry no one replied to you. I hope you have called your doctor or it has gotten better by now. My DD had her first cold at 6 months also. It was clear and went away in about 10 days. Sleeping was hard for her because she used a pacifier and it was hard for her to suck and breathe. We put some books under two legs of her crib to raise her head and used a cool air humidifier. If it turns green or yellow, you may want to make an appt with the doctor because it could be a sinus infection. Good luck.

Im sorry to hear your baby is is always hard. I know that when my son had his first cold and congestion that we too put a pillow under one end of his mattress to elevate it, used a warm air humidifier, and had to use saline spray and use a nose sirenge (sp?) to clean out the nasty stuff clogging him from breathing good. I also found some vicks baby rub (for use with 3mths and older) used it at night on his chest and back seemed to help. I hope this helps if you haven't already got the answers you needed. Hope all is well soon.
