*SIGH* I have a 4 wk old baby girl with a cold! She got it from me and my other daughter. She has lots of mucous and is now coughing. I took her to see the doc monday and of course she is fine. But the cough is so scary, sometimes she coughs so much she is like gasping for air. I am using the cool mist humidifier 24/7, which does help somewhat. As for the bulb syringe for the nose, it doesn't really fit in her nostrils because she's so small and the mucous is down deeper in her throat. I just don't know when she is going to get better. Today is now 2wks of this! I am scared and frustrated! She's just too little and young to be going through this already.
