I am starting to get really worried even though she isn't crying as much , my one month old baby is still is having a runny nouse and coughing with a rough voice , she really doesn't ask for her food like she usually and isn't getting as much sleep like she usually does she wakes up every 10-15 minutes .I have been rubbing chest rub on her chest like her DR told me to which has been five days already since then ...Is it bad to take her out after applying that chest ru on her to the Dr's

  • Have you called the Dr to let them know how she is doing? I would think at some point the would want to see her again and the no eating is sort of alarming. Call your Ped and let them know how she is doing and if you want to take her out with you, check with them first. The health of a one month old is nothing to play with. Instead of posting here, call the Drs office.

  • After 5 days I would be heading in for a recheck- she should be getting better or headed in that direction by this point.

  • If you are taking her to the doctor's office, no. After 5 days, she needs to be seen again if she isn't improving. If you just want to get out of the house, then yes it's bad to take her out.
