Answer: Hi dear honestly the over the counter cough syrups does not really help in treating the cough in babies it is just for our peace of mind that we feed cough syrup to the baby the first thing that we need to solve is the cold which the baby has for which the baby is coughing how to get rid of cold in 5 months old baby you need to give a lot of steam bath to the baby at least 2 to 3 times a day you can run hotstar in your washroom and make the washroom steamy and can sit with the child it will help in losing the mucus and will drain through nostrils, apart from this please feed the baby breast milk because it has antibodies to fight with the germs, you can use nasoclear nasal drop which is safe for blocked nose lastly try to warm some mustard oil with garlic pods in it massage the baby thoroughly on the chest back and salts and make the baby wear a pair of socks so that the heat is retained and helps in healing the cold so that the cup subsites eventually with time please have patience it takes time for the cough to go away completely .. Hope this helps!

Question: My baby is coughing continously around 20 times at a stretch. I am giving the cough syrup given by doctor still. She is coughing. Any solution?
Answer: Hello! Ajwain or carom seeds have antiviral and antibacterial properties. Dry roast ajwain on a tava or pan. Put the ajwain in a cotton cloth and make a potli of it. Gently rub it on the baby’s chest, back, under feet and palms. Make sure the potli is not very hot. First, test the temperature by putting the potli on your wrist. Make sure that the baby must have a single layer of clothing before you start to rub potli on the body. Caution: Don’t rub it on the naked chest of your baby.
