Your baby is having recurrent episodes of croup usually associated with him having a cold. Croup is usually due to an infection and inflammation of the vocal cords in the larynx or voice box. This illness usually lasts for a day or two then clears up. Importantly your baby is not distressed and is playing and eating normally. It is a good idea to use a humidifier in his room. Do not use Pholtex as it contains codeine. He does not appear to need any extra treatment at this stage.
