Maya has been congested for a few days now and I just figured it was the typical nose stuffiness (my dd was like this for months after she was born), but starting yesterday she's been coughing a little bit as well! Last night was lots of congestion..we put some breastmilk in her nose and sucked out some mucous (it was yellow-ish) but when she tries to take deep breaths through the congestion, she coughs too and it sounds musous-y. When she's sleeping or not breathing deeply she's fine.. it's not consistant and not too often. Is this bad? I know there's nothing much to do on my end. She's still nursing as usual. Do I call her pediatrician (or wait..we have an appt. Tuesday)? Or should I just monitor it and start taking her temp. every now and then? If it turns to something worse will her temp. go up? I feel helpless, she's just over a week old and she's already sick!! I don't like having a winter baby.
