RE: 4month old and coughing

Hello again!
Thanks for the advice last week!
My little boy does not cough that often, but when he coughs, he brings up some milk and looks like slime...

I spray his nose with the sterimar, and keep his nose clean.
He does not have difficulty sleeping or drinking, except for the cough and bringing up, he is fine?!

Must I take him to a doc or for some physio?

Thank you so much for all your advice!

You are welcome. Your son may have a form of whooping cough as his symptoms do seem to suggest that this is the cause. It would be best to take him to seea doctor,but tell the doctor first that your son probably has whooping cough.
