Babies and young children get colds quite often, as their immune system is still developing. Although it can be worrying, it's not usually too serious and tends to pass within a couple of weeks. Along with a runny nose, babies are more likely to have diarrhoea or looser stools, which of course ups the number of necessary nappy changes! Keeping on top of the issue by changing your babies nappies frequently, and using our Metanium Everday Barrier Ointment to protect their skin is the best way to ease a little off your baby's distress.
