  • I know that he is not too young -- my DD showed those same signs and now has full-blown seasonal allergies. When she was that small though, there is minimal things you can do -- We had to do humiifier and sitting in the bathroom with hot water going full-blast through the shower (steam) -- but she ha a stuffy nose too! G'luck!

  • They can have them from birth. There is no specific age for them to start.

  • You really need to wait and see what the Dr suggests. The baby is way to young for allergy medicine or over the counter remedy's
