Q.

Cough at night

Hi Doctor

My 6 1/2 month boy has developt a cough at night. He only coughs when he is lying down and around the same time at night. This started on Monday and he is contantly drooling due to teething, but did not cut yet. He is not distressed, no fever or congestion. He eats well and drinks his milk ok.

i dont know if it might be a post nasal drip or what? he looks ok, the thing is i hate the cough.

Thanks

It is almost certain that your baby is coughing becuase of a reflux problem. Please take him to be seen by his paediatrician.
