  • He should be fine and should have some good immunitites by now. At least it's just a cold and not flu!

  • I agree humidifier or steam take him the bathroom with a super hot shower. The nose sucker will help and breastfeeding will help. If there are any other signs of symptoms like he has a really high fever over 103 that you can't get down or won't eat then immediately get him take him to your dr. Be careful about taking him to the er though once my son was sick and got worse for being in there. I was told i could stay but pretty much everyone in their had the swine flu so i left. Just be aware of what's around you.

  • breastfeeding will help thei immune system and take to the doctor if you find it necessary. continue to keep the little ones away from the baby and sanitize often...oh and continue to make them wash their hands and cover their mouth when coughing
