What to do for your baby’s first cold

It will be ok. Try not to stress. All babies will get their first cold sometime. We’re here to help you through it with a few helpful tips. Always remember to talk to your healthcare professional if you have questions.

Stuffy Nose?

Have saline nose drops and a rubber dropper on hand. The drops can help thin mucus and make it easier to remove from your baby’s nose. Run a cold water humidifier in your baby’s room to add moisture to the air. This may help your baby breathe a little easier.

Getting Enough Liquids?

Hydration is key when working through a cold. Have an additional supply of fluids like pumped breast milk, formula, or water at the ready. Offer them to your baby even in smaller than usual doses— just to keep him or her hydrated.
