could this be allergies?? OH no!!!

Ds is 7.5 months old and as of late he has had a dry cough and watery eyes. He seems generally miserable usually in the afternoons when windows have been open or after weve been outside. I do have seasonal allergies and one of my other kids has them as well. (different daddy tho) I did put a call into his doc who wanted him in ASAP, but I said that I wanted to see how the weekend went, and if it was a cold or allergies to wait and see. ANY suggestions here? I LOVE the fresh air in the house, but Im thinking I should keep him inside and windows closed for a "test"??? I dont know... he needs the sunshine because he is still EBF.

He might have enviornmental allergies. Is the watery eyes and cough bothering him? Maybe if you expose him to it, you can help him build a tollerance

My 2 year old has seasonal and enviromental allergies. He takes Zyrtec with good results and Patanol eye drops for itchy, watery eyes. However, I don't know what they can give a younger baby. DS also has asthma and up until this season he always just had albuterol in an updraft or the syrup. Good luck, I hope he feels better soon!
