    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    We have twins almost 8 months old and one also has that cough. I called the nurse's hotline and they told me just to watch if he has trouble breathing to take him to ER, otherwise, humidifier in the sleeping room along with elevate his crib. We are giving him tylenol as well and that stops the fussing.

    Good luck.

    Have you tried to rub a little of the Vicks BABY rub on his chest. We found that sometimes helps. Make sure it is the BABY one.
