Hi, its me once again....
DD who is almost 4 months started coughing a couple of days ago... she also has runny and congested nose... and some sneezing.
I don't have an aspirator, any tips on how to bf her more effectively?
Also she is drinking less because this morning, i woke up feeling so engorged and after feeding her, i took out the pump and was able to pump 5oz!
She is not taking bottles now but i just had to empty them as it was getting painful...
Other thing, her coughing is only for about 3-5 seconds, not longer than that. I heard it could be whooping cough if lasts more than 20 seconds.
I still haven't taken her to ped cause she sleeps well and still nurses and does not have a fever, she's also not fussy and really behaves like she always did, except that she's coughing and sneezing.
By the way she hasn't gotten her DTap shot yet...
We have decided to delay her vaccines till she's a bit older but the hospital nevertheless gave her Hep B and TB shots (without our knowledge)
Any Mommies there who know more about whooping cough?
