I've just started weaning my 5mo dd and she is really enjoying it. Not much of a sweet tooth luckily but all veggies put her way have been wolfed down with big smiles and mouth open for more. We are only a week in so she's had very little food as such but she's now come down with a cold and cough and i'm wondering if it's to do with weaning or am i just being paranoid and she'd have got one anyway?
Wondering if i should have left it a bit longer now but she's enjoying it so much i don't really want to stop.
Argghh don't want to be a worry bunny but can't help it....

no i think you may be a bit paranoid, it shouldn't be the weaning, prob just one of many colds.

glad she's liking her veggies!

no worries, whenever mine get colds i think its because of something i've done / not done, but getting colds is part of being children, however snotty und unpleasant it is! lol

Lift her cot onto books at the top so her head is slightly raised to help with breathing.

hope she gets better soon.

Highly unlikely to be to do with weaning her although you might find she goes off it a bit if she's all snotty. Don't worry, give her a few days off or stick to nice runny purees. I give ds's very runny fruit purees when they're full of a cold for the vit c.

snuffle baby on her feet at bedtime, raise the cot head up, humidifier in her room or damp towel over rad and lots of snuggles smile

Thanks for advice, i'll lift her cot a bit and make sure she gets loads of cuddles. Poor little thing she's so bunged up but quite amusing when she does sneeze and it all comes flying out! She looks so much happier for a bit. x
