  • I would defiantly call the doctor on that as your child is still very young and at that age, can become dehydrated very quickly.

  • Ugh, poor baby. You can't do too much. If it is really bad than take the baby to the doctor. Make sure he drinks enough. Put some camomile tea into a pot, boil it and put it in his room. Inhaling the camomile makes easier to breath. Because he is on breast milk probably, just make sure, you use breast defence or put the milk in the bottle for now. Because he can get more virus from you if you have it. The other thing, be careful what to eat. Whatever you eat or drink, it goes right into the baby through the breast milk.
    But because he is so tiny I definitely would go to the doctor straight away.
