Question: My baby is 26 days old.He is having cold and cough. What should I do?
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. In a piece of a cotton cloth wrap some ajwain seeds and make a potli (ball),
2. Heat a flat pan or tawa and warm the potli with it and gently place it on your baby’s chest, covering the whole chest.
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.
1. Roast 1 tbsp of ajwain and 2 dry big cloves of garlic on a tawa.
2. Remove from tawa and let it cool down and then keep it into a soft, clean cotton cloth and make a small pouch or potli of it
3. Place it near your baby when she is sleeping.
The smell of garlic and ajwain will ease your baby from congestion and would also help to open her blocked nose. Garlic again has the antibacterial and antiviral properties.
1. Keep Hands Sanitized
