Before I had children I had never heard of Croup, in fact I hadn’t experienced it as a mother until Amelie was around 22 months old. Croup is a condition that affects the windpipe, the voice box and airways to the lungs. When children get croup they have a distinctive barking cough that sounds a bit like a seal, they…
