A toddler can develop a bad cough under many different circumstances. A cough often comes along with many other childhood illnesses and can be quite bothersome for your toddler.

For starters, make sure that your child is drinking lots of fluids when they have a bad cough. Stick with healthy fluids like water, milk and diluted juices. You can also give them drinks like Pedialyte to help with the bad cough as well.
If your child is over the age of two, you can give them honey to help with a bad cough. Toddlers who are over the age of two can take a half a teaspoon of honey to help with a cough. It is also best to keep your toddler away from smoke and other irritants that might trigger a coughing spell.

Foods are also something that you should monitor when your toddler has a bad cough. Stick with soft foods that will be gentle on the throat. Some of the best options are chicken soup, Popsicles and puddings. Ice cream is also a food that can help soothe a scratchy throat caused from a bad cough.
