Could he be sick?

My 11 week old's nose was a little runny yesterday. I only had to wipe it twice but I don't know if thats normal? His temp. is 99.4 but he's also coughing a little bit, nothing horrible though just a little dry cough.. Could this mean he's sick?? He doesn't seem real fussy either. I'm just getting paranoid that all of a sudden he's going to be horribly sick if I don't do anything now. Am I overreacting??

  • It is probably nothing big but if it will make you feel better go ahead and call the pediatrician office in the morning and at least talk to a nurse, if not make an appointment.

  • It's probably just a cold! If he develops more symptoms or his fever gets higher, call the doctor.

  • Depending on where you live, at this time of year, it could be allergies. I know, I know, they say young ones can't have allergies. But, I've seen my share. They can and do.
