  • I know it is hard when baby is sick, especially one so young. I would nurse/feed as often as baby is hungry and watch the wet diapers to make sure she is hydrated. Unless she has a fever of over 101, in which case the doc would probably want to see her since she is so young. Run a humidifier in her sleeping area. Put a little warmed saline in her nose and suction before a feeding, be warned she will not like it. And some vaseline/aquafor on the feet while they are sleeping helps too.

    Hang in there. She will get better.
