5 Year Old Coughing - Multiple Pediatrician Visits no help

Posted , 1 user is following.

Anyone ever experience their child coughing at night immediately after falling asleep for weeks now, will cough pretty much every 10 mins or so with brief 1-2 hour periods of no coughing. 

Paediatrician says he’s fine and is likely just battling a cold. 

During the day he’s his normal self, hardly coughs, no runny nose or other cold symptoms.  Eats and plays well like his normal self. 

Have tried a ventolin puffer (orange and blue) as per the doctor. 

Have tried cutting out dairy. 

Have tried keeping him upright, sleeping in other rooms (living room, basement)
