Ask your doctor for a dropper, many have them for small children and they are very handy for measuring out the correct dosage. It makes it much easier for a child that is hard to get medicne into. Our son was the same wat from 18 months-30 months and this worked well (maybe dip the end or bottom side of the dropper into honey or sugar and that's what the child will initially taste, then just squirt the dosage into his throat) Keep a close watch on the little ones, especially if the cough doesn't go away or they run a fever!

That's terrible. I pity your cute baby. You may apply or try water therapy unto him especially that he's still a very young kid. You may also consult your close friends or any doctor about the situation so everything is safe and happy.
