2 month old coughing and sneezing? Possibly allergies?

[deleted account] ( 3 moms have responded )

Hey, my daughter is 2 months old and I'm a bit worried that she's sneezing and coughing a bit much. Whenever she sneezes or coughs its always twice in a row. I'd say she does about 3-6 times a day. It's never harsh or anything like that, but we do have 3 dogs and one cat. There are 2 short haired dogs, one long haired dog, and one short haired cat. Do you think she could have allergies this early? How would I tell? Anyone else with something similar?

It could be allergies, but at that young age they will not prescribe allergy meds. I know my son is 3 wks and 5 days old, we have NO pets, and he sneezes at least 3 times a day since he was born. Doesn't matter if we are inside or outside. If your daughter is not bothered by this, then I would just bring it up to the pediatrician and not be too worried.
