Worried

Since Friday ma baby is not sleeping the whole night she wakes up hourly, by the way she is 4mnths,having a blocked nose with slightly coughing though. Can i associate this with teething?

Your baby seems to have caught a cold.Her blocked noe is not due to teething. Keep her nose clear by using Infant saline nose drops at least twice a day and only if she is feverish give her infant Panado.If her cough worsens or if she seems to have a 'tight' chest please take her to be seen by her doctor.
