My one week old DD seems to have caught the cold from my 2 year old DS. Blocked / snuffly nose. Should I be concerned / seek medical advice? She's breastfed. She's very sleepy (but probably just in a newborn way) and also still jaundiced from birth.

Just best to ensure she keeps feeding do you think? Midwife not due back out til Wed.

Yes, make sure she keeps feeding. Lots of newborns get very snuffly anyway, there isn't much you can do really about it, just let it pass. smile
