Teething or Sick

Lauri - posted on 12/28/2015 ( 1 mom has responded )




My granddaughter came down with a cold November 2nd. She is 13 months old. 2 months later she is still quite congested, you can feel at times a rattle in her side and she becomes out of breath. I have talked to the babies mom and she just keeps saying she is fine. I have researched teething and I see they can get runny noses, there IS NO runny nose in my granddaughter just constant congestion. There are animals where she lives so I thought maybe allergies, but she was at my moms for 5 hours and still congested and came out of breath running and playing. I need to say my son is in a custody battle with her that has not gone to courts yet, long story so he can't take her to doctors...

She sounds sick. Id get a pulse oximeter and check her Oxygen levels, make sure she isnt low on oxygen which can be dangerous. Make sures shes running no fevers. My son has broncitis and is the hspital with the same symptoms and it can turn deadly if left untreated so please be careful. Otherwise lots of rest and TONS of fluids might help. Good luck!
