  • Same as any age really....
    Stuffy nose or runny nose, cough, possible fever, fussy

  • I would say pretty much the same they are for everyone - stuffy, doesn't want to eat as much, having problems sleeping. At the same time your baby could be getting teeth and not have a cold.

  • I agree with Amijanell. If she is sick you have to make sure she/he stays hydrated. Check diapers for urine.

  • I think that at that age your pediatrician would like to see your child because there is not much medicine that can be provided to such a young age. Call them and ask them. Our pediatrician told us that they don't want to see any child getting sick at least until they are three months old. Just give your pedi a call to be on the safe side.
