    Does anyone have any advice for soothing a nasty cough?

    Izzy has obvioualy picked up some kind of cold, she's all snuffly and sounds like she's rattling when she's breathing, but she also has a nasty dry cough. She's brought up 3 feeds in the last 24 hours as a result of a coughing fit, and the best the dr could suggest was to give her cooled boiled water if she was bringing up too many feeds to keep her hydrated! :growlmad:

    I've tried keeping her in a steamy room, which seems to ease the stuffy nose, but I can't think what to do for the cough?

    Any advice - it's killing me listening to her coughing and crying :cry:
