My baby is 8 weeks tomorrow. For 3 days now she has had a lot of yellow mucus and watery eyes. Fussy and sleepy. Now today she has a little cough like a dry one then she sounds lime she chokes a little on tne mucus. She doesnt look very bad. 

Shes had a 99 fever the last two days and now its at 100.1   Should i let it run it course or call the doctor? I mean everytime i taken my older kids all they say is use humidifer and have them drink fluids and cost me $200 with no insurance. 


Shes still eating and smiles so she doesnt seem that bad

For a baby that young, I'd go to the doctor.

Quoting that_mom_mary: For a baby that young, I'd go to the doctor.

What can they do with her so young?

Well A lot of things. If she needs antibiotics, oxygen, fluids what have you.

She isnt running a high fever so unless she is not eating or not having wet diaper there isn't much they can or will do. Why do you not have insurance for your kids?

I missed the date when she was born. I got really sick after she wasborn and missed the 30 days to add her. The other kids have insurance again, we are working with insurance to get her added
