There is a widepread belief in the community that milk causes children to be more phlegmy or produce more mucous with chest infections. Several large studies involving hundreds of children have not been able to prove this or to show any connection between milk and the excessive production of mucous in children.Your child has had a recent chest infection and this is causing her wet cough and also causing her to produce more mucous than usual which she is trying to cough up.Also your little girl is not allergic to milk so hopefully drinking her bottle will not cause any further problems.
