    What do you mean by constant? My little guy starting sneezing, what seemed like a ridiculous amount, around 2 weeks. Sometimes he would sneeze 4-5 times in a row!

    I talked to his pedi and he said since there were no other symptoms, it was most likely dust irritating his nose or something like that.

    He's 4 months now and I've noticed it happens a lot less now.

    So, could be nothing, but if you're still worried, you should contact his doctor.

All is good! Perfectly normal
