Needy post but its the first time H has been off colour and I don't want to miss anything. He seems to have a cold - sniffly nose and green snot. Seems fine in himself but v snuffly and think he woke in the night as stuffed nose made it harder to breathe. His chest doesn't sound rattly and he doesn't seem to have a temp but he's v snuffly noisy when feeding.
is there anything I can do to help him? At what point do I need to really worry or take him to doctors?
i know it's probably nothing but I can't help worrying with first one!

B's got a cold and a bit of a cough, we've been using the calpol plug in to help decongest him. The saline nose spray is also good before a feed to help them breathe. If he gets a temp or seems not himself then I'd take him to the drs, or if it lasts a long time.

Tilt the matress, Calpol plug in or olbus oil/Vicks in a bowl of boiling water in the room, saline drops.
Keep an eye on his temp and also whether he drops feeds. Also if his chest does get ratterly/ is using his stomach muscles rather than his chest to breath.
And lots of mum cuddles!
