My baby started out with a stuffy nose. Now its stuffy, sometimes runs, and a wet cough. Whats wrong?
A cold?: Babies get colds just like children. However, because their airways are smaller, you have to watch them closer. For fevers in infants <3 mo, let your doc know. For older babies who do not have fevers and are eating & peeing, normally, try some nasal saline. A squirt up each nostril with each diaper change may help a good bit.
