    Default Coughing and Sneezing?

    My 4.5 week old is both coughing and sneezing and sounds like she has a fair bit of phlegm in her throat but has no snots.
    I'm not sure what to do.
    Surely there's nothing the doctor can do is there?
    I'm more worried about how young she is to have a cough though.
    Argh, the worry never ends.

    It's too late to see a doctor today but has anyone had a newborn get sick like this this soon?

    Not me personally but a friend's 5wk old baby is in hospital with a chest infection so maybe go to the GP tomoro with your Little one just to make sure and catch anything before it escalates.

    Mind you DD (5wo) does sneeze sometimes and when she's over stimulated and very tired she will cough but otherwise seems healthy (feeding and sleeping well)

    My 6.5 week old has been congested since 1.5 weeks. He has had no runny nose, but just sounds like his throat and nose are full of phlegm. Never had a fever, and feeds well. We've been to the GP twice and seen the MCHN since it all started and each time I've been told that some babies are just snuffly, and mine must be one of them. But every baby is different - for your own peace of mind, maybe check in with your GP?

    She got worse later last night, the cough is dry though.
    I think she hurt herself from all the crying she's been doing all week (not sure if she has reflux or what) and I'm hoping it's more of a tickle/dry cough than a lurking chest infection.
    She is still congested and a bit snotty but nothing too bad.
    Just feeding her on demand and baby wearing all day which I personally hate but is the only way she will settle in the day time.
    I am hating these early weeks.
    I wish they'd go faster.
