Hi mamas, I'm freaking out. My LO is only 7 weeks old and he got a cold. He's sneezing, coughing, sweating, and eating less. Luckily he doesn’t have a fever. How can I help my little one feel better 😢. Also, I'm Annoyed. We had our friends over who has a 4 year old. The 4 year old was coughing all over the place and I'm afraid he passed something along. I would never risk bringing a sick child to see a 7 week old 😢

I would take your LO to see DR.I would be extremely Pissed off if someone did that to me.I have 6 weeks old & no one with kids is allowed, for now, to come over with kids. Besides, all our friend’s kids are in preschool/VPK where they‘re exposed to so many germs.I also have 3yo who goes to school and already came back home coughing & sneezing, but luckily She was fine but I got the bug.Next time when you're Having friends over don't Be afraid to tell them please make sure your child is healthy!

Put a humidifier in the room. And that's all you really can do hes too young for anything. Putting BABY Vic's on his feet with socks may help a little too

Put him in the bathroom when you take a shower for the steam.

My LO is 13 weeks and has the same thing. My whole family had it. I took my daughter to the dr. They said sailine in nose, vitamin d drops, and a vaporizer at night. I have a rule at my house, anyone with ANY cold symptoms had to wear a mask now! 😡 good luck and just keep an eye out for flaring nostrils and belly breathing and of course fever.
