5 month old with chest congestion


Posted by firsttimer

Hello.  My 5 month old daughter has had a runny nose now for a couple of weeks.  She is teething and so I thought that this was just part of it! However she now has some chest congestion and I can feel it in her lungs when she breathes occasionally.  She does not seem bothered by this nor does she have a fever.  She has not had any health problems before...she was a month early but born healthy after a c-section.  She usually sleeps 11 hours a night and is a well tempered baby. I am a first time mom and worried about the congestion!  We have been putting a humidifier in her room at night and giving her infants Tylenol for the pain with her swollen gums. I am just worried about her lungs...is there anything else I can do?
