Baby's get colds just like we do, I am sure one of the experts might chime in but I think you have nothing to worry about. If the symptoms get worse and the fever comes back and a bit higher you might take your little one to the doctor but, just a bit of a runny nose shouldn't be much to worry about.

Good luck!

Hi purpleflute -

I'd be curious to know how old your baby is and what temperatures you are measuring.

While it may not turn out to be much more than a cold, a call to your ped can help determine if you should go on in for a check or just wait it out at home.

Hope that helps.
