Question: My daughter just had a beautiful baby girl.

My husband and I are idiots. We had colds and held one day old baby might have been several hours old.

Pediatrician just saw baby but didn't know this.

Said baby very good!

She sneezes every once in awhile. Pediatrician said normal for babies.

Worried about any problems. My husband and I are idiots.

We have been watching our grandson for what was planned to be 3 nights while she recovered
from c - section. He has cold (28 months old)
Just saw peditrician said to keep him away a little more. It will over a week.

Most, important if my husband and I very close to four hour old baby. Is she alright?

Worried grandma/

On top of that the my daughter and husband have just gotten colds.

Thanks
doctor

It's common to have some amount of cold and nose block in babies and kids.

As long as the not having red flag signs like -

1. Severe respiratory distress
2. Fast breathing
3. Inability to feed

5. High grade fever of above 101F

you need not worry.
