12 days ago dd2 (along with dd1 and ds) got a cold. It started with a runny nose, then a fever for 3 or 4 days, and is still left with a runny nose. I called the ped last week and they said she is still too young for meds. I was to do the cool mist humidifer (not sure how this will help) and keep cleaning out her nose. I do clean her nose out endlessly and I know green is bad (which it is yellowish green in the morning and clear all day).
She is not sleeping well, she is up and down all night and nursing (not just using me as a paci). I am lost at what I can do, my nipples hurt from feeding all day (mostly at night), is there anything I can do for her?
Should I bring her to the dr monday for having a runny nose for 2wks? I mean if I can not give her anything for a runny nose OTC what can a dr do?
She seems ok all day except at naps she wants to be held not put down (in her swing) and I can not hold her all day.
Thanks for any tips you might have.
