10Runny or Stuffy Nose

If your baby often suffers from a runny or stuffy nose, this can be the result of a chronic cold or due to allergies. Unfortunately, it may require some super sleuthing on your part to figure out which one it is. While most colds occur during the winter months, a

baby suffering from indoor allergies will most likely have symptoms all year long. Also, if the nasal issues present along with a fever and thick, greenish-yellow mucus and disappear in a week or so, it’s probably just a cold.

However, if the nasal discharge is thin and watery, this may be indicative of an allergy. Other clues to be on the lookout for include mouth-breathing (most babies tend to nose breathe) and a lot of sneezing.
