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.
