  Croup – When to call the doctor
 
My baby is prone to croup, and it is hard not to panic when it happens. Please can you tell me the signs that I should call the doctor?

The following are the signs that your baby’s croup is severe and you should call the doctor:

- If you baby is struggling to breathe to the extent that her stomach is being pulled during each breathe

- If the breathing problems are getting progressively worse

- If the baby is not able to swallow

- If you notice a bluish tinge, particularly around the mouth

- If your baby cannot be soothed and continues to be unhappy for any period of time
