Your baby is very likely to sneeze from time to time. This usually does not mean that they are getting a cold. They may sneeze only to clear their nose of tiny particles of fuzz, which often lodge there. These particles frequently come from the blankets or flannel clothes.

One way to tell whether your baby is sneezing because he has a cold or because of fuzz or dust is to notice the amount of nasal discharge produced. If the baby has a cold, there is usually a large amount of nasal discharge produced, while the healthy child’s nose will be dry and the only mucus that you will see will be expelled with the sneeze. In addition, an infant with a cold usually will have difficulty in eating and will have other signs of illness.
