Are you giving him any treatment for the cough? Doctors usually suggest nebuliser for relief from cough. Cough can be one reason the baby isn't taking feeds. If he's cranky then it's better you take him to the paediatrician

If there is mucus in the stools then there is likely an infection. You need to consult the doctor for medications. When baby is unwell the appetite also tends to be less. It's quite natural.
