Hai.. is she suffering from cough and cold. As baby is too small please consult your Paediatrician.

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

Hello...
Babies cough and sneeze for the same reasons we do- to clear their nasal passages of something irritating, such as dust, or to move mucus or saliva out of their throats. Coughing and sneezing are the only ways babies have to clear their airways... So, dont worry if baby is feeding , sleeping normally... if cought is associated with distress or congestion or fever then please meet doctor as soon as possible... and if you are feeling something is going wrong then dont wait to consult doctor...
