5 Month Old Baby Coughing & Sneezing since Birth
GramMaMa posted:
5 Month old baby coughing & sneezing since birth.

Coughs almost everyday for a few seconds (approx. 2-3 seconds).

Sneezes almost everyday usually 3 to 4 times in a row.

Also has occasional heavy breathing, sounds like panting.

Pediatrician doesn't seem concern about symptoms due to the baby's over all health at this current time.

Additional information: Baby spent first 2 months of his life in the hospital detoxing from methadone & other prescriptions such as clonazepam.

When giving birth mother was at 170 mg of methadone, 4 mg of clonazepam, (moderate - heavy) cigarette & marijuana smoker, relapse twice using heroin while pregnant.

I'm the baby's grandmother, the father & I are currently raising him in my home with the most love and care.

Any information or advice you may have would be most helpful.

Thank you all & God Bless
