Thanks for your query.

Before advising any cough syrup, please let me know the following things:
1. Since how many days your baby is having cough?
2. The cough is dry in nature or associated with mucus production?
3. Any associated symptoms like fever, cold, running nose, difficulty in breathing?
4. Any diurnal variation- whether cough is more at night or continuously same throughout the day?
5. Any difficulty in feeding or any history of vomiting?
6. Any other significant finding?

Hope to hear from you soon.
Wish your child a good health.
Take care.
