Well last night was not too bad however I was still up with my little barking seal 3 times. I did try a new treatment last night out of sheer desperation as I could not face going back into the shower!
I read an article that if you massage the child's feet with lavender oil it helps them relax, therefore they do not cough as much which then should lead to a peaceful nights sleep.
I used some baby oil with lavender in & massaged his little feet & yo & behold the coughing stopped! Apparently the smell & the massage is the trick so no more steroid treatments for my little munchkin anymore!
