Answer: Ho dear ut baby bilirubin is not at dangerous level and can be cure by feeding ur baby frequently. Jaundice in newborns is common because their livers are not mature enough to remove bilirubin from the blood. sometime bilirubin at lower level can be treated itself and keeping baby to morning sunlight for 10 min can be enough to cure it. Dontput baby directly to sunlight But either let him sit in window or use some net or net dupatta u should get the level checked after 1 or 2 days to get assured it is getting fine.

Answer: 1. Breast milk and Sleep Breast Milk has got the power to drive away the bacteria and viruses from your baby’s body. It provides immunity from various other germs too. Increase the frequency of breastfeeding as it comforts baby. Sometime when baby has congestion they get irritated while breastfeeding as they cant breath while sucking the milk. In such case calm your baby first then feed in a comfortable position like supporting baby to elevate baby’s back so to help easy breathing. Let baby sleep as much as possible. Resting helps cure cold quicker. 2. Warm Ajwain/Carom Seeds compresses  Carrom seeds or Ajwain is also known for its antiviral and antibacterial properties. To cure cough of your little one; 1.

Just make sure that the cloth doesn’t get too hot or else can burn the sensitive skin of your baby. For best results continue this for about 2-3 days. The smell of warm ajwain from potli will help reduce congestion in baby. 3. Steamy Air/ Humidifier  Steam helps to reduce the cough so you can bath your baby in a steamy bathroom or just put on the hot, shower and let her relax and experience the steamy air for some time. Use humidifier at nightespecially if its winter and air is dry in winters. 4.
