Thanks heaps for both of your replies, you have put my mind at ease!
HoneyMurcott - I mean mainly nasal congestion but I have noticed that she is a bit rattly in the chest and also sneezing alot today too!!! My DH is thinking that it is the mucus from birth moving and making it's way out of her body and me, I am just hoping that she is not coming down with a cold etc.... I am hoping that if that is the case that a newborn has the ability and immune system to fight common colds!!!! This is our first so I guess any symptom I am getting concerned about right now!!!
Nightinggale - thank you, it is reassuring to know that these things can take a little longer than 12 days to make their way out of her body. She is very happy within herself, has no temp and is eating as per normal so I am tending to think that perhaps DH is right and it is the mucus from birth.... if only they could talk hey!!
She is also a very windy baby and although it has not been professionally diagnosed, our poor darling suffers from with I think is colic. We changed her formula to Novalac Colic today and after only 2 feeds seems to have improved. Fingers crossed all these symptoms and the mucus are all normal!!
Thanks again for your replies, it's reassuring to know that there is somewhere to come and ask these questions!
