My baby boy is sick

So I absolutely hate having a sick child and now I have one for the holiday weekend!  I am just starting to get over a nasty upper respiratory infection that I ended up going the the doctor for antibiotics for, and now my little man and hunny have it.  I tried to steer clear of them for the most part but of course I had to do some of the taking care of him!  I don't really think the antibiotics did me any justice either it seems to be something viral that has to run its course.  I'm now debating on whether or not I should take him into an Urgent care to be checked out or not cause I'm not sure if they would even give him anything.  He has a cough and drainage coming from his eyes and nose but so far no fever or anything though I have been giving him infants tylenol lately.  Any insight from you other mom's and your experiences, do you think I should get him checked out or wait until I can get into our doctor on Monday since he has no fever?

i would just wait it out..unless he gets a fever  but it sounds a like a cold...and benadryl works wonders for the drainage i've been told

He is 3 months old, so I'm leary about giving him anything cause everything says under 2 ask a physician!

Ya I wouldn't give him anything except Tylenol! I'm even Leary about giving my 4 yr old stuff because a lot says not under 6
