What is going on???? My 13 week old and I are just recovering from horrible cold(his was much milder, just a bit of snuffle).I was petrified as it never happened to my first 2 DS until they were 2 or 3 yo.
I've used salt water spray, baby nasal drops spray, snuffle babe (on his feet only) and when I bath him I fill the big bath with hot water + 15-20 drops of Oilbas baby so the bathroommis nice and steamy(not the baby bath btw)...

Thank you noblegiraffe and sorry for the late reply.
Karvol out of stock everywhere so have baby Olbas and snuffle babe smile

No, babies will be exposed to colds all the time at this point of the year.

Do stock up on saline drops and Karvol though.

I have a bit of a cold myself and friend just told me her son has a cold. We were planning on visiting. Is it selfish for me to still go?
