I have a 7 month old EBF baby boy with a runny nose that has lasted over month now. It's clear and goes back and forth from watery to thick depending on the day. He shows no other symptoms of being sick and seems happy most of the time ( he gets a little frustrated when it's time to nurse because he we are constantly having to stop and suction his nose). We have seen the pediatrician and they said it could be allergies which I find hard to believe because it's winter and hit when he started REALLY teething. Does anyone else have this problem and could it be because of teething? I feel awful for him because he isn't eating as much and my supply is also starting to dwindle as of a week ago. No sign of teeth but he is a drool factory, sometimes irritable, and will put anything he can get his hands on in his mouth. Is it teething? Please help!
