Your baby's cough and loose stools are not due to teething. He has developed an infection, probably caused by a virus such as the well known RS virus. The RS virus usually causes a chest infection known as bronchiolitis. This illness usually lasts for about 10 days and most children recover without any treatment. As long as your baby is able too feed and sleep well all is well. If he is breathing rapidly or he is unable to feed or sleep you must take him to see your doctor. Keep his nose clear by using Salex nose drops twice daily. I do not have information on the safety of Septogard for a baby of 8 months.
