My 12 days old nb caught a cold from me and I'm fully breastfeeding. No fever so far. Has anyone and their nb went through this before? Will he get better on his own?

Keep breastfeeding so you pass your antibodies to baby to fight this cold. Wear a mask and wash your hands before handling baby. Use the nasal aspirator for baby if the nose is blocked. Baby will usually recover without medicines:) but if baby has trouble breathing, or other worrying symptoms, bring baby to a doctor ❤️

Same. If still no well and mucus block the breathing then please go kkh or any baby clinic to see doctor. I went to kkh and the nurses use machine to suck out the mucus and my baby breath better and recover. See the situation. If recover by its own then is fine.
