My 1month old baby is coughing and having greenish running nose..What should I need to do? Bring him to doctor? Is there any meds? He is little ones..
Nasal wash: At 1 mo the primary cause of cough is the environment. House dust, fragrance, perfumes, detergent or cleaning products all leave scents that may not bother you but irritate a babies nose.

Any age: You infant may go to the movies with you at any age. Whether you go to the movies depends upon your infant's temperament and sleep schedule.

36+ months: I'm not convinced that sharing a shower with a baby is ever a good idea. If you are sitting on a bench in an oversized enclosure with a hand held spray wand for baby i might see the process as less risky. Many adults are injured yearly slipping in a shower and i don't see exposing any baby to the risk. A sure footed 3 to 4 year old might be at less risk. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
