Answer: Hi dear!
Cough and cold is usually due to infection and fever indicates that body is fighting against the infection, in fact we are also facing same problem with our baby but after a lot of reading i found some basic easily available things which can help it cure and strengthen the immunity.
*You can give honey and ginger in every hour to the baby..
*Try honey with cinnamon, pinch of Turmeric and pepper. Works like magic i hv started using it and this concoction can be given on a daily basis throughout the year to build immunity as well m yet to see a result which hopefully i will see in winters..
*Increase the intake of Vit C rich fruits like mausambi juice, orange, pomegranate, etc. all kinds of veggies..
Hope this helps!
