Recognition: At 1 week of age a baby will turn towards the sound of a mothers voice, at 1 month he will smile at a face that is smiling at him, at 4 months a baby will get excited when his mom approaches, and by 1 year many babies will say 'ball' or 'dog' when they see one.

Yes: The prevailing information when i looked into this stated a firm preference for mothers voice was established by 8 hours(compaired to similar sounding women) with dad trailing behind a bit at 24 hrs.

Sooner than expected: Babies as young as 1 month of age will show a preference for a familiar face like a parent over a stranger. It's reasonable to expect babies to begin recognizing people they frequently see as early as 1-2 months.

Fluids and rest: Same as what's best for you. The body's immune system does great clearing cold viruses; we do best when we help it do its job using lots of fluids, rest, raising the head of their bed at night, running a cool mist humidifier, nasal saline drops.
