my step-sisters came over to visit for the weekend and the youngest one (shes 5) had a cold, but her BM diddnt tell us about it. and she wanted to hold the baby, and i told her that she had to wash her hands first, but come to find out she didnt really wash her hands and now my baby is coughing and sneezing. could she catch a cold this quick? and if she does what should i do for her?

She can catch one that fast. Keep a super close eye on her because she is so young it can turn into more FAST!

Yes a little one can get sick that easy, you can go to the doctor but they are just going to tell you that they have to fight it off on their own! That is what happened to my little one

Yes they can catch a cold that soon. When my son was that young he sneezed a lot, but wasnt sick.

I would definitely follow-up with your pediatrician to make sure it does not progress into RSV.
