Since my baby Allan was born on 3/3/03 I have had a head cold twice. I had not been home from hospital long when I had my first cold, I just put it down to being tired due to sleepless nights. It didn't seem to affect Allan. I have just recovered from my second cold and this time Allan seems to have developed a blocked nose, he quite literally rattles in the nose. He seems happy enough and doesn't have a temperature. My doctor said when I visited him for my cold that because I am breast feeding I shouldn't pass it on to Allan, seems this time he got it wrong. I really don't want to go to the doctor with Allan, I have infant Panadol at home but I don't think using it will alleviate the problem. Have any other mums had a similar situation and what treatment did they find the best.
