A baby is often diagnosed with colds or flu symptoms when their body doesn’t produce enough of the medicine it needs.
Some babies are born with a severe allergy to certain kinds of medicine.
But the CDC says most babies born to women who have had babies before are likely to have a mild cold or flu.
Some of these are more severe than others, and many babies will develop a mild or moderate cold or fever.
The CDC recommends that pregnant women get all of their baby’s vaccines.
