Q.

Baby sick for 2 months ??

My 9 month son has been sick since January with his chest. When he coughs you can hear he has phelm on his chest, he has been 3x to the doctor, and he has been on antibotics. He was for the 3rd time last week thursday at the dr. She said he chest was very bad, he also had a high fever. He was put on Augmentin. That medicine will be fininshed today. I am astmatic, but no one in my house smoke. Could his chest be so bad because he is teething again??
