Suggest treatment for persistent cough in infants

My 2 moths old daughter started with common cold(running nose, sneezing) and doctor prescribed maxtra drops. After 4 days her cold has come down and after that she started with mild cough. Now cough frequency is increased somewhat. What to do for cough for the two months baby?

Thank you for following up.I suggest-
1.Consult your pediatrician, if baby has bronchitis then you could start antibiotic-azythromicin 10mg/kg or cefadroxil 10 mg/kg.
2.Do steam inhalations with soda during 5 min (1 teaspoon for 2 glasses of boiled water) or nebulisation therapy(the most effective)
3.Vibrational massage 3 times a day and stimulate cough at baby.
4.Use saline drops to clear the nostrils 2 drops 4-6 times a day.
5.Ambroxol syrup(Ambrodyl S) 1 ml 3 times for relief of cough
Take care
