Question: Can i give gripe water to my baby? He is 8 month old n having cold with runny nose
Answer: Hello dear. This can cause too much alkalinity and worsen colic symptoms. Watch out for gripe water containing peppermint. You should also avoid gripe water containing gluten, dairy, parabens, and vegetable carbon. Although gripe water is generally safe, it's not recommended for babies younger than 1 month. This is used for colic in babies. You can consult your pediatrician and ask for any colic drops or syrup.

Question: My baby is having more cough. Have given syrup of cough but still he is not getting well. N also since feom morning he is crtinf more
Answer: Hi dear,
Cold and cough in babies are quite normal as their immune system is still developing.comfort your child by keeping him warm in this changing weather. Make him sip warm fluids through out the day,that will help him to stay warm inside the body and also flush out germs. Massage his feet and palms with warm mustard oil. Steam is an excellent decongestant.put few drops of eucalyptus oil in boiling water and make the child inhale it. You can also make him sip this decoction.boil some water,put few tulsi leaves,cloves,grated ginger,half teaspoon ajwain. Reduce it little,and make him drink 1 table spoon every hour.stop any kind of dairy and fruits at this stage.you can make clear soups for him with crushed pepper. Tomato soup would also be good.as it is rich in vitamin C which would help his immune system to go stronger.add pinch of turmeric in whatever soup you make.its antiinflammatory agent would fight his infection. Viral infections would finish its course by 2 weeks atleast.
