  • mild cold symptoms (such as a runny nose, a minor cough, and a low fever) develop into a more pronounced cough, labored breathing, and sometimes wheezing. Your baby may also be irritable and restless and have a poor appetite.

  • If in doubt, call the doctor.

  • Sounds like a normal cold to me. Contact your doctor tomorrow morning and ask for his/her opinion.

  • It's hard to tell if its RSV even for the pedi, my DD got it her 2nd week at daycare (I hate daycare!) but she remained happy and upbeat she just got really stuffy at night. The pedi recommended salines drops, even letting her sleep in car seat or bounch seat so she wasn't flat on her back so she wouldn't get so stuffy. We didn't put her there to sleep, but the saline drops worked wonders :)
