Question: My baby has developed running nose and cough and is unable to sleep. What shoukd I do to calm her
Answer: Hi mommy, I know it gets really difficult if baby gets cold and as he/she is so small that we can't give medicines. Fighting an infection takes energy and can wear a child out. When your child's resting, he's healing. And that's exactly what he needs to do.Breathing moist air helps loosen the mucus in the nasal passages. A warm bath is very relaxing, too. Have a humidifier or a cool-mist vaporizer going at night and during naps and playtime in the bedroom. Let a hot shower run for several minutes. Then give your child a warm bath or just sit with her in the steamy bathroom
Saline drops and a bulb syringe. Drops clear the nose when kids are too young to blow their nose.Tip your child's head back and squeeze two or three saline drops into each nostril to thin and loosen the mucus. Try to keep his head still afterward for 15 to 30 seconds.Squeeze the bulb of the syringe, then gently insert the rubber tip into his nostril. Gently close off the other nostril with your finger. Slowly release the bulb to collect mucus and saline solution. Remove the syringe and squeeze the bulb to expel the mucus into a tissue. Wipe the syringe and repeat with the other nostril. Repeat procedure if needed.
Question: My baby is 3 months plus, he is coughing alot and is unable to have a sound sleep. Please suggest me a remedy.
Answer: Dear take some dry roasted carom seeds and tie them in a cotton cloth. Gently rub it on the baby’s chest, back, under feet and palms. Make sure it is not very hot. You can place it near your baby’s nose so that he can inhale the smell. Or apply baby vicks instead of oil and also raise baby's head a bit with pillow that will prevent cough and baby can have a sound sleep..
