A cough may be the begining of the baby getting it's body too Acidic!
When the cough becomes raspy it is a sign that the body has gotten too acidic and the boby is not digesting it's food properly!
There are some things you may do which are natural and may help solve the problem!
#1 Start giving the baby some pure Blackstrap Molasses on a small spoon each day to suck on! And you may also mix a small amount of seaweed Kelp powder with this in a dampened condition to provide the trace minerals which the baby is not getting!
#2 Start giving the baby only a couple grains of Epsom Salt
by some means, if you feed it any water, then disolve it in the water. You will only need a few grains of the Epsom Salt, do not use enough to make the baby have the scoots, if this amount has been used, then lessen the amount til it does not have the scoots!
#3 Start feeding the baby some Lime water each day, only a small amount!
The way You make Lime water is with Calcium Hydroxide, which is just pickling lime, and it may be gotten from the canning section of a grocery store.
You only add one Tablespoonful of the Calcium Hydroxide into one gallon of Distilled water and mix it, this is then your dilute solution of Lime water!
For an adult you may use one Tablespoonful of this dilute mix in any drink during the day for extra Calcium and to help Neutralize the excess body Acids!
For a baby, a teaspoonful may be enough with the Epsom Salt!
You may do these things and help yourself and your baby do better!
