I have no experience with this...
Brian is sick right now. Symptoms are: terrible sounding cough, mostly congested sounding; slight runny nose; fever off and on; seems miserable and his cry sounds weak (for him) and hoarse. The part that concerns me is that his cough has a barking sound to it and the inhale between coughs is almost as loud as the cough itself.
My MIL in all her optimism said yesterday that all her kids sounded like that before they got croup. But if she hadn't said anything I never would have thought of it. If it wasn't for this bad cough, I'd think he just had a normal cold.
So at what point would you bring your kid in? Is there anything they can do for croup? I just don't know anything about it. I think I remember reading something around here about bringing them outside or something, but I can't remember the details. (Sorry about the stupid questions, I have gotten VERY little sleep for the past several days)
