My 3.5 yr old dd has been congested (stuffy nose, slight cough, circles under eyes, but no dripping- worse in the morning.) for the past 2 months. She began preschool in August. Do new preschoolers have perpetual colds at first? I have read that there are so many different cold viruses that a child can catch one after another until immunity is established. Then again, it could be allergies, right? I sincerely hope not. Her diet really erroded this summer - she was refusing all foods but breads, pasta, and cheese. Some fruit. Now she seems to be coming to her senses - today she had broccoli sprouts, carrots, and butternut squash soup! (along with her usual quesadilla, of course. lol.) Is this familiar to anyone?
