Baby cold?

How do you know if LO has a cold or sinuses? Today she's been really phlegmy. I use the bulb syringe and it sucks out a lot of mucus. She also hasn't been finishing her bottles. It sounds like she's having a hard time eating because she can't breathe throuh her nose well. I've been taking her temp every few hours. So far the highest was 98.7.

  • Lo is having the same problem. Ugh

  • Doesn't really matter if its just congestion....you will end up treating it the same.

    For my LO, if she's not wanting to eat, I take her into a steamy bathroom for a few minutes and feed her once I hear her breathing clear a little. This usually helps...

  • My LO is stuffy too particularly in the evenings. We treat with saline drops, warm showers, suction and keeping him elevated as much ad possible. He does the same thing with eating. I feed hom however much he will take however often he will take it. I'm sure someone will bash me for this but he actually took half a bottle in the showerwith dh last night! He could breathe better and dh said he was chewing ehis hands so we went with it!

    This.. I literally take my LOs in the shower with me until the congestion goes away.
