Answer: Hi dear first stay calm. Babies do get cold frequently due to immunity system of babies being less. Do start antibiotics.u can also do some home remedies. use humidifer at home to.keep congestion free. . Massage baby with mustard infused with garlic and ajwain. This will make baby warm and losen the mucus, u can warm few peeled garlic and tie it in potli with ajwqin. Massage baby chest with it. Make sure potli temp. Is warm and berable. u can also use saline drop for loosening the clogged nose.mucus And use buld syreinge to take out mucus as baby cant blow it.
