Both of my girls have a dry cough. They don't have a fever, just a little cold. What do you do to help alleviate the cough? They are 5 months.

I have used one of those vicks plug ins for my son. He is coming up 3.5 months now. That along with a humidifier. I have a cool mist one at my house, a warm mist one at my moms (her house is freezing cold) which I add vicks inhalent stuff to. Seems to help.

Are you sure it isn't a social cough? Babies often start a "fake cough" around that age to get your attenion, so it could be that. It could also be due to the dry winter air. Try boiling some water on the stove to hydrate the air a bit. :)
