  • No mine is 4 1/2 months old, and has a cold and a ear infection, it sucks I hate seeing my lil guy sick and nothing I can do for him to help him be all better, get some baby vicks, and if your babyes nose is all stuffed up get some little noses saline spray and put a drop in each nostril then suck it all back out with a nose suctioner (I dont even know the real name for that thing but hey it works great lol)

  • Yes my baby girl was sick with a cold. There is no medicine you can give them, but I used the nasal aspirator (the bulb sucky thing) to keep her nose clear and that helped. Also propping up one side of her bassinet so that she would sleep inclined a little bit seemed to help her. It made it hard for her to eat so I had to be patient with smaller more frequent feedings. The cold lasted about a week.

  • Yep at about 6 weeks dd got a little congested and a dry cough so i sat her in the steam of the shower and inclined her bassinet so the mucus woudln't bother her and it worked really well. No medicine needed

  • our son was about a month old when he got his first cold. the doctor said that there was nothign you could really do and it would just pass on its own. if it does continue for more than 5 days i would callt he dr so the baby can be looked at just to make sure that it has not spread to something more serious but aside from that, it will pass!
