    5 months and stuffy

    My daughter is sneezing, and coughing a lot. I believe the coughing is due to drainage from her sinuses. She has a runny/stuffy nose. She will be 6 months on the 4th of September. When she is laid down on her back or tummy she coughs and gags, so I elevated her with a pillow so she could sleep. I don't think it's serious enough to see her pediatrician, how can I alleviate her stuffy/runny nose

    Hello,

    I hope that your daughter's symptoms have cleared. If not, it may be a good idea to have her pediatrician take a look. Also, here is some information on how to soothe your child's cold that you may find helpful now or in the future. Please let us know how you both are doing!
