  • its the wheezing and sleeping too much I'd be worried with and the fact that its getting worse. Don't wait to take her in. Not with an infant!!

  • My daughter had the same symptoms this summer, we both got sick, it turned out to be an upper respitory infection! Contagious, go to the doctor!

  • Wheezing is not good. Go to the doctor as soon as possible. Respiratory infections can be very serious.

  • Get into the doc's office! If she's sick, they may also hold off on her 6m shots.

  • My Son 7 months just had a cold with those same symptoms. my dr gave us an antibiotic (minor ear infection) and a decongestant. You should take her in if she has an ear infection too she could be in a lot of pain, especially when she coughs.
