  • Can last about 2 weeks, but just like adults, it's a good idea to get it check out if it's not starting to get better after 1 week or is obviously getting worse.

  • Breastfed .... it won't last nearly as long if at all.


    Formula fed ... longer then us as adults take due to baby having to develop it's antibodies without any help from their normal food (breastmilk).


    Good Luck! I hope baby feels better soon!!
