In brief: Baby URI

Infant's symptoms of sneezing, runny nose, and tachypnea (increased rate of breathing) likely due to viral URI which is very common - especially if they are in daycare or have siblings in school.
Now, if baby demonstrates decreased activity level, poor eating/drinking, decreased urine output, retractions (sucking in of chest wall with breaths), blueness, or you are concerned -see your pediatrician.

In brief: Maybe bronchiolitis

Your baby may have bronchiolitis.
This is caused by a virus often rsv. If you believe that your child is having trouble breathing you should have him or her evaluated by a physician.

In brief: See below

It sounds as if your child has a cold, however, if you are concerned that your child is breathing too fast or too hard, then your child needs to be seen.
