does your LO sneeze a lot?

Right now, my oldest has a cold virus and I am thinking Moriah will get it next. I am paranoid that Daniel is going to also catch it. I have been washing my hands like crazy and I am not letting the girls get too near him. Now I know that eventually, I can't stop the virus from striking everyone but he is still too new right now and I want to guard him from any germs/viruses that come into the home.

Anyway, I have noticed that he has been sneezing several times a day over the past 4 days or so. :eek: Is this a newborn thing or a pending cold virus????

My kid sneezes a lot. (The whole-body sneezes are so cute!)

Hope the germs stay far away from Daniel!

The twins sneeze alot and we thought it was from the feeding tubes but since they have come home they still sneeze alot. Not sure if its a newborn thing or not.

Chloe has sneezed a lot since birth, at her 3 day check up we asked about it and they said its completely normal. She still sneezes multiple times a day. If they aren't sneezing up anything green I think it should be okay?

I've been paranoid about it and was told sneezing is normal because it is the only way they can clear their nose.

Doctor told us that the baby goes from a warm, moist environment to a dry one- so they tend to sneeze a lot- not to mention the suctioning of nostrils the moment they are born.

Flynn doesn't sneeze a lot, but her explanation did make sense!
