as some of you already know i have a 5month old baby boy who has been sick for 5 days now although the fever is gone ( thank goodness) he is still very stuffy and now started coughing alot at night time he screams his head off im also sick as well now and im finding it very hard to get better myself due to the fact of no sleep when will he get better? i have bought tylenol and a humidifer which makes it a bit better but still is there any end in site?i also thought breast fed babies dont get sick . anyways does anybody have any ideas how long he will have his cold?

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

My daughter is 4 months old and has had a cough and stuff nose for about 7-8 weeks now.. I started using nose drops called and also put some drops around her bedding every-night and within a few days her stuff nose was gone !

my son's first cold lasted on and off from 3 weeks old till 10 weeks old(at the time he got his first baby jabs at 10 weeks)

he's a january born baby and is always suffering from the odd cold .. had plenty in his 14months of existence (takes after his daddy .. he gets constant colds .. daddy's never suffered from flu though luckily)
