Sorry, a worried ftm here. My 12 week old ds developed a slight cough over the weekend, he doesn't have a temperature and is breastfeeding fine with plenty of wet/dirty nappies. His breathing seems ok but when he cries it sounds like he's loosing his voice. Should I get him checked over by the gp or am I being overly worried? He is fine within himself and slept ok last night.

I wouldn't worry. If he's not got a temperature and is eating well, it's likely he just has a cold coming on and a bit of a sore throat.

You are right to keep an eye on him, but I would agree. If he is breastfeeding ok that is a good sign. They like to keep you on your toes!
