There is no feeling quite like fighting back the need to cough so you don’t wake the baby sleeping in your arms.

You think coughing is involuntary. That the tickle in your throat will set you off at its discretion.


A mother’s desire to get her baby back to sleep is stronger than the urge to cough.

P.S. not coughing when you really need to is torture. Someone tell the government. This could be used in interrogations. “You cough, we kill you”
