    Ah hun, don't blame yourself, these things happen!! My LO had her first cold at 3 weeks old, they are gonna get them at some time, just give her lots of TLC, keep her warm, well hydrated, raise the head end of her matress/basket/crib, it helps!!

    Hope she is feeling better soon!!

    Her getting a cold has nothing to do with her being too hold or cold, colds are caused by germs, and as hard as you can try to keep her away from germs they will get through. So you cannot blame yourself.

    Hopefully it wont last long.

    It's really common to blame yourself for these things early on but it's not your fault lovely. Just keep hugging her and all will be well!

    My baby caught her first cold yesterday from her daddy, and now I have it too. She's all snotty and snuffly. I have a sore throat, which isn't a great accompaniment to the sleep deprivation that goes with a 10 day old baby who is feeding every hour and a half!
