hello experts my baby is 3weeks 4days today ...after we got home from the hospital, I had a severe cold and a dry cough. actually the cough started 2 weeks to my delivery. I went to see my GP and I was given antibiotics and a cough syrup. when we got home both the cold and the dry cough still persisted and I went to see my gyny for our first visit. he also gave me a different antibiotics and the same cough syrup. 2 weeks later I noticed my baby has a cold but the cough has not started. I reported it to my doc and he asked me to buy normal Seline nasal drop. am still using it for her but the nose blockage is on and off. Am afraid she will get the cough too... what do I do to stop my cough... and most importantly what precautions can I take so she doest get the cough from me. she is too young to bare the discomfort that comes with coughing

You take medication for yourself you can use nasal saline drops many times it's safe and no side effcets.it cold is persisting you give steam inhalation to the baby.but if voigh occurs show your baby to pediatrician Take Care
