    My poor lil tinker is sneezing like a trooper, has a bit of a dry cough, has watery eyes and is a bit snuffly :( She has been teething so it could be teething related or just a cold but her dad suffers with awful hayfever so could be that?!

    I'm thinking a teething cold, bless her she is feeling pretty rotten :(

    Any ideas?! I might pick up some karvol to help her breathe a little easier.

    I've been wondering the same about my LO. Shes been realy snuffly and sneezy for about 3 weeks. I thought it was a cold to start with but now I'm not so sure. Can babies get hayfever?

    we have a blocked up little bubba at the moment, shes also teething so we're not sure whats caused the cold. we've been using the karvol rub on her chest and then the oil in some water in the room, it seems to be helping a little bit, hopefully it will help your lo

    I think they can but tbh I've not looked into it that much.

    My lil Girly seems to be sleeping the day away between milk & food, she must feel rotten :( I hate that feeling when you have the start of a cold :(

    I'm in the same position, Louis had a cold as OH had one and then so did Louis and I. This was 3 weeks ago, his nose is still snuffly in morning and at night and he started getting runny eyes about the same time and sometimes dry cough. I think it might be touch of hayfever, doc checked his chest and ears, but not any the wiser as to whether it's the tail end of a cold or hayfever. He has also been drooling a lot this last week and sticking his fists in his mouth all the time so not sure if teething. Saline drops/spray is good too for their nose. Hope she is better soon x

    Awww, hope your lil man is feeling better soon too. Sounds like it could well be teething related, doesn't it?!

    Ooh, I'd forgotten about the saline spray! I might pick some up. I tried to use one of those nasal aspirator thingies, and when I used it, she put her bottom lip out and sat there with tears rolling down her face :cry: So, I think its safe to say she doesn't like that much! :(
