Answer: Hello dear Following remedies u can try for cold and cough 1. Steam: Breathing moist air helps loosen the mucus in the nasal passages. 2. Lots of rest: When your child rests, he's healing, which is exactly what he needs to do. 3. Saline drops and bulb syringes : Using a bulb syringe works best for young babies, especially if a stuffy nose interferes with breastfeeding or bottle-feeding. 4. Extra fluids:Drinking plenty of fluids prevents dehydration, thins your child's nasal secretions, and flushes them out.
Answer: Hi Dear! Steam inhalation is wonderful in cough as it loosens the mucus, sit along with the child .....also you can try this ....take some mustard oil heat it add chopped garlic n ajwain let the garlic become brown switch off stove and when oil is slightly warm apply on chest n back n neck..lil camphor can be added after switching off stove...give honey n turmeric mixed little will help in cough a lot.. Hope this helps!

Question: My baby is one month old and suffering from cough... Pls suggest any effective home remedy
Answer: Hi.. The best remedy for an infant is, applying baby vicks vapour rub on your baby's back, chest and feet. Make the baby wear a comfortable pair of socks after applying vicks. Repeat this twice or thrice in a day. You will definitely see the difference. Also, for blocked nose use saline water (nasoclear), it is easily available in any medical store. In case you find no difference in twenty four hours, then see a pediatrician. Please do not use adult vicks vapour rub.
