    Is it normal for a baby to have so many coughs and colds? I took Harry to the doctors last weeks with a chesty cough and he's started sneezing/sniffling again today and his eyes are streaming. He goes to nursery 2 days a week and I know most bugs are picked up there! Does anyone else's LO seem to have one bug after another?

    From working in daycare for years I've noticed that a lot of the new kiddies pick up everything for the first month or 2 until their immune system gets a wee bit stronger.

    That's a good point, we've spent most of the weekend playing in the garden and his eyes were streaming today :-( I suffer from asthma and hay fever so it's a possibility! Thanks Hun will keep an eye on him x

    Chloe got a lot of colds in the first few months, we used a spray for her nose. She then got a bad cough (well to me it was as I hate it when babys/children cough) around 3-4 months but I got her some calcough and it went straight away near enough.

    The HV told me that babys are always getting cold and coughs and as long as she isn't ill in the way of tempature and alertness/in pain then it's fine and in a way a good thing s it will harden her immune system so when she goes to school she will be less likely to catch as much. X

    Not at the moment as it doesnt massively bother her they said the dont tend to prescribe them so young.
    we were just advised to keep her indoors early morning and evening, keep windows shut, change her outfit after shes been playing outside.
    erm. get her some sunglasses and rub vaseline under her nose. etc etc.
