Answer: Before suggesting you remedies for his cold, I would like to point out the issues/reason which have infected your baby with cough and cold. First, keep your baby’s room warm. It shouldn't be too hot and dry. As dryness is favourable condition for bacteria/virus to cause congestion. Whenever using blower/heater always place a bowl of water next to it. It will keep the room humid. Humidity inhibits bacterial/viral growth. Second, In winters always dress your baby in layers rather than making him wear heavy sweater or jackets. Start with cotton vest, thermals, light sweater, jacket if going out. Too many clothes might heat up baby's body more than required and cause suffocation. When you remove his clothing for diaper change or massage his body comes in contact with temperature which is quite low from his, the sudden change in temperature can make your baby ill. Third, while bathing make sure the place is airtight means there is no scope for direct breeze to enter. Next steam the place before bringing in the baby. Let hot water run for while this will increase the temperature of the place. water used to bath baby shouldn't be too hot or cold. After bathing dry your baby completely, especially his hair no water should be dripping from his head. Cover him properly then come out of the washroom. Dress up baby immediately and breastfeed him. Fourth, before touching baby make sure your hands are warm. Now coming to remedy part- If your baby is suffering from dry cold and cough first thing is to get a humidifier. As dryness in the air make it more difficult for baby to breathe. Add 2 3 drops of eucalyptus essential oil to it or put it on baby’s cloth. its will heal the blocked nose. Next massage your baby chest with desi ghee mixed with sendha namak. in case of runny cold. First use a nose bulb to clear out the mucus. Keep doing it throughout the day. Massage baby with mustard garlic ajwain oil. Apply nutmeg paste on baby's chest feet and palms daily at night. Hope this helps your baby to recover soon
