two weeks pass...

yeah we dealt with this from thanksgiving through new year's -- i think it was my most depressing parental experience yet. worst sound ever is your kid hacking through the night. we ended up getting some antibiotics which helped. also this honey-based formula called "Chestal" I think.

sounds good!

our doctor said she has new guidelines to seriously cut down on the amount of antibiotics she prescribes, so none for us :(

huh, that is not how my pediatrician handled it -- we went in and said she'd been coughing for six weeks, and she wrote us a prescrip. is there a reason they're cutting back?

my kid is four, we have never given her any antibiotics. doctors at Kaiser won't do it, even if we had asked.

her cough lasted about 4 weeks, it's gone now.
