    Well i think you should go for an expectorant syrup if cough is productive, Generally cough takes while to resolve in children and patience with observation plays a role here. Try an expectorant syrup and give a weeks time for cough to resolve. Stea inhalation with caution is recommended. If sputum or secretions are colourless theek its safe to wait and with but If its greenish or yellow you may Neend to start antibiotic course
