3 month old with a loose cough

My grand daughter is having a hard time sleeping, etc. Could a 3 month old be allergic to dog hair or her formula? I have heard that an infant hasn't had the 'time' to develop allergies but what about an infant who can't tolerate a certain formula? She has no fever and no stomach discomfort, just lots of nasal discharge, coughing, etc. Thank you for your expertise.. Connie in MI

Thanks for writing. The baby may have a cold, an ear infection, reflux, formula intolerance or possibly another condition. It's best to have her checked by the pediatrician to see what can be done to help her. Good luck!
