My three month old has stuffy nose, diarrhea and a little cough but no fever, should I take him to the doctor?

Viral illness. This is the most likely condition. As long as he is eating well, taking in fluids, interacting with you and his environment in a normal fashion, and not sleeping excessively the overwhelming probability is that he will be fine. If he develops new symptoms or fever, then you might reconsider and take him to a pediatrician. Good luck.

My infant is five months has a dry cough for a week and has a runny stuffy nose no fever should I take him to doctor is it a cold?

Cough. it is always hard to know when to take your baby to the doctor. If he is eating, drinking, pooping, peeing and acting otherwise well and having no fever then I would say no. If he has any trouble breathing, the cough becomes worse, he gets a fever, he becomes lethargic, dehydrated or you are just too worried then get him seen. Worried Mommas are always right.

Fluids/monitor. This is something you can probably monitor at home. If baby has playful times/fluid intake enough to wet diapers every 6hr/breathing not too noticable suggests home care is ok. Lack of play/noticable incresed work to breathe/poor fluid intake all suggest a dr visit in order.Nasal saline helps keep the nose clear & tylenol (acetaminophen) as a comfort med may help.

Moisten him. Before you go to the pediatrician for a 'sick visit', consider giving him warm, moist air. Put a mister in his room while he sleeps and give him 1-2 drops of saline into each nostril a few times each day. If he's still congested or seems unwell, hit the pediatrician's office asap.
