Hi Jeanette, I wonder if you could give me some advice. My 3 week old has caught a cough from my toddler and its bothering her a bit. She seems to be worse after a feed. ( shes breastfed) She'll have a coughing fit after a feed and sick up some milk. Is there anything i can do to help ease her symptoms? or should i just take her to the GP?
Thanks in advance.
Lou.

Hi Lou

As she is so little its best to take her to see your GP so that he/she can listen to her chest.

Its very common for baby's to be sick after feeding as the coughing and swallowing reflex are so close together.

Try sitting her upright for as long as possible after each feed.

Try and elevate the head of her mattress/cot very slightly so that her head is just slightly higher than her shoulders.

She may be like this for a few days hun  :-* :-*
