Your baby has whooping cough which is a very difficult cough to stop. The cough can last for 3 months or longer. As she cannot sleep at night it would be worthwhile treating her on Aterax syrup which helps to relieve the cough. She will need to be seen by a doctor as the Aterax syrup is available on prescription. Inform the doctor that your baby has whooping cough as the doctor may want to add other treatment as well.
