Your baby won't stop coughing -- what should you do?

Go outside. Sometimes a brief exposure to cool outdoor air relieves the cough. Dress your baby for outdoors and try it for 10 to 15 minutes.

Eliminate cough triggers. Smoke can irritate already inflamed airways. Don't smoke in a house with children. If your baby has a cold, keep them away from other sources of smoke such as grills, wood-burning fires and candles.

If your baby has asthma, follow your doctor's treatment plan.

For toddlers only: Is your baby over a year old? Here's a remedy straight out of grandma's kitchen to calm that cough -- honey. A typical dose is 1/2 teaspoon for toddlers and preschoolers.
