    at what point

    Advertisements
    do you take them to dr? we have a children's hospital here and i was thinking about bringing her in but idk.

    she's teething on top of a cold. her chest is really raspy and her nose is crusty. she just got into a coughing fit but her temp is only like 99.5. and she's been screaming all day.

    should i wait it out until tomorrow?

    This! I'd call first, just because going to the doctor is SUCH a hassle...I bet it's even worse when you have to pack up the car for the baby!

    Right now, I'd probably wait it out, especially since the fever isn't high.

    With a raspy chest, you can sit with her in a steamy bathroom and see if that helps. Also, elevating the head and chest can help her rest.

    If it gets worse, I might take her in the morning.

    I'd call the peditrican in the morning, there isn't much the hosptial would do for you if she doesn't have a " fever" fever. Also would do the steamy shower , saline nose drops and a booger sucker thingy.
    Also can't hurt to call ask a nurse!

    Try the steam from the shower, or bundle her up and take her outside bc that can help with coughing. If she is wheezy- i'd take her in. If not, i'd just keep an eye on her and call the dr in the morning.

    I'd be a little cautious since it's RSV season and babies generally have weaker immune systems. If she has any additional respiratory issues, I'd probably take her in. Also good advice to call the nurses' line.
