  • Sounds like a cold to me. A doctor's visit isn't necessary, as long as there is no fever or trouble breathing or anything. Just suction out his nose which might be easier if you sit with him in a steamy bathroom for a while.

  • Sounds like allergies. Is the nose mucus clear? My grand daughter was 14 months before she got a tooth. Good luck.

  • Is the snot clear or yellow or green? If it's clear and he has no fever, I would just keep a close eye on him and see what happens within the next couple days. It could be the teething, or allergies! Some babies (my son being one of them) are hard to tell even more so than the normal babies when they don't feel good because they r chipper all the time! Call ur sons percent ask if u can givehim some Tylenol if u thinks he's uncomfortable from the teething.
