Hello, It would be good to get a RT PCR test done for the baby as well. Does the baby have fever? If cough aggravates or causes breathlessness then you will need to see a pediatrician. Keep yourself and baby isolated. Maybe a home consult could be done. For now, can start Syp. Mucolite for the baby- 2.5ml thrice a day.

U can start the child on mucolite ls syrup 2.5ml 3 times a day and continue for 5 to 7 days. Isolate urself with the baby for 1 more week assuming you are already isolated. If she s feeding well and active no need to worry about cough. MUCOLITE LS SYRUP 2.5ML 3 TIMES A DAY FOR 5 DAYS
