my 11 mo baby is at a babysitter with 5 other kids.
I feel like every other week she has a cold.

Shes had a cough for like a month! I would say its pretty consistent. maybe for a few days she clears up and then shes coughing again.

does anyone know anything I can do?

pediatrician said her lungs are clear hes not concerned. but she coughs and then flinches and I think it hurts her throat

I’ve never tried before but if my child were to develop a cough I’d put the child in epsom salt bath for 20 min.

With a friend of mine, the mom kept saying that it was "just allergies" - except it was bacterial pneumonia. B'H for antibiotics!

I would give the child throughout the whole winter preventative regime of vitamins. I would contact maxi health and ask them what to give. From what I remember I used to give kyolic, vitamin c and flax seed oil and I think a good probiotic.

Also I would use the humidifier throughout the winter as a prevention.

OP, can you say what humidifier you use?
I’ve yet to find one that actually does anything?

It’s very hard. My kids got sick at the babysitters constantly. My 3 year old still gets sick so frequently.

My son had a cough long term. His chest was also clear but after the prolonged cough took him to get checked and he had asthma. Once he was on a preventative he was okay. Perhaps your child just has a cough or maybe there is something else going on? Perhaps you should take your baby for another opinion prior to starting the natural remedies? It's awful having a cough for so long. I had a cough for a long time, my chest was clear but after a blood test the Dr. Realised I had bacterial pneumonia. I hope your baby has a speedy refuah shelaima!!

Let her sit in a bathroom with the hot shower going. The steam works wonders

It's a powdered vitamin. If you call a vitamin referral place ( I always call Maxi Health) then they will tell you which one is good for your situation.
