Answer: Hi, give your baby doctor's precribe medicine on time. Along with you can try this home remedies for cold and cough..Give him breastfed on demand, don't force.  While sleeping , her head was kept raised with the help of pillows so that she could breathe easily. Heat a tava and dry roast 5 garlic pods and 2 tsps of ajwain. Once roasted , make a pouch out of it in a clean muslin/ wash cloth.  This pouch was warmed , and rubbed on baby’s chest and back when she was sleeping. This helps to dissolve the phlegm accumulated in her chest . boiling garlic cloves in mustard oil and applying it externally on chest and head of baby also helps... kept vaporizer on in the room with tulsi leaves where she sleeps , so that the moisture helps her to breathe and soften her congested nose.... Your breast milk is full of antibodies that will keep your baby strong and will help your little one fight against infection and germs. If your child's really uncomfortable, visit ur doctor.

Question: My baby have cough last week, I have given antibiotics. But the cough is not totally gone, what I do?
Answer: Hi! Please dont use antibiotic ever without consulting Paed, antibiotics are not good for babies. Cold are caused by viruses, climate changes and infections since the baby is only 4 months old, you try the following to give some relief. 1. Use saline water if the nose is stuffed- Saline water is best in stuffed nose it helps loosen the mucus. 2. Give her plenty of Breast milk-Breast milk is everything your baby needs now to take the germ out through pee. 3.You can give steam bath-steam bath also loosens the mucus and gets drained out from nostrils. 4. Musterd oil massage on the chest and feet-If the oil suits the baby please rub it on the chest and feet to generate heat this too will help loosen the mucus. 5. Elevate the baby upright so that he can breathe easyily and while sleeping make the pillow also a little elevated. *Steam n nasoclear drops. Steam 3-4 times a day - hold him and sit in a steamy bathroom (run a hot shower). Also, holding him upright as much as possible will keep him comfortable. Saline nasal sprays are good too and will help keep nasal passages moist and loosen the mucus. *apply babyvicks on clothes bedsheets for some relief. *If you are massaging massage with warm oil...that also bring relief *you can give ajwain sek in a potli too. Hope this helps!
