It does sound as if your baby has a cold. As you know, colds are caused by a virus infection. Keep your baby's nose clear by using infant saline nose drops two or three times a day. Usually no other treatment is needed and his cold should clear up after 5 to 7 days.

An impressive share, I just given this onto a caeulogle who was doing a little analysis on this. And he in fact bought me breakfast because I found it for him.. smile. So let me reword that: Thnx for the treat! But yeah Thnkx for spending the time to discuss this, I feel strongly about it and love reading more on this topic.
