Cold/Congestion In Newborn

I am a first time mome of an 11 week old beautiful baby girl. She is in daycare part time (3 days) and has a little cough/congestion. She has no fever and is seemingly feeling okay.

My Son Has Really Bad Diaper Rash!

He tends to be congested sometimes with a runny nose. Does this sound like an allergy? I started thinking I gave him some nuts yesterday and today. I give him those every once in awhile.

2 1/2 Month Old with Bronchiolitis

I'm not sure if I spelled it right, but we took my 2 month old to the doctor with a very bad cold and cough. He said she had bronchiolitis. Can anyone tell me what I can do to make my daughter a little more comfortable & if I should calm down & not be too worried. I've gotten a vaporizer and some saline drops for her nose. We just can't get her to cough up the "yucky" stuff. Actually we can't get it out before she swallows it again. Help... does anyone have any suggestions?
