Viral URI: Do not let your husband to touch baby or get close while coughing. Material from nose may contain virus and is transmissible. If baby gets the cold will probably recover uneventfully, but if develops fever, changes in sleeping, eating, irritability, behavior, etc., then see a pediatrician asap.
