Answer: Hi mommy,  I know it gets really difficult if baby gets cold and as he/she is so small that we can't give medicines. Some tips I am suggesting hope it will help. Take care! Lots of rest: Fighting an infection takes energy and can wear a child out. When your child's resting, he's healing. And that's exactly what he needs to do. Steamy air: Breathing moist air helps loosen the mucus in the nasal passages. A warm bath is very relaxing, too. Have a humidifier or a cool-mist vaporizer going at night and during naps and playtime in the bedroom. Let a hot shower run for several minutes. Then give your child a warm bath or just sit with her in the steamy bathroom Saline drops and a bulb syringe: Drops clear the nose when kids are too young to blow their nose.Tip your child's head back and squeeze two or three saline drops into each nostril to thin and loosen the mucus. Try to keep his head still afterward for 15 to 30 seconds.Squeeze the bulb of the syringe, then gently insert the rubber tip into his nostril. Gently close off the other nostril with your finger. Slowly release the bulb to collect mucus and saline solution. Remove the syringe and squeeze the bulb to expel the mucus into a tissue. Wipe the syringe and repeat with the other nostril. Repeat procedure if needed.

Question: Meri beti ko cough & cold bahut ha...kya du usko
Answer: This remedy is known as unakka manjal chuttathu in Kerala. Place dried turmeric stick on the flame till its gets a slightly charred texture. Rub on a stone to get the turmeric paste. Apply the paste on the bridge of baby’s nose to get relief. Mix turmeric powder with a little water to form paste. Take it in a ladle and heat it. Switch off once warm. Apply the luke warm turmeric paste on chest, forehead and feet. The heat from the turmeric can absorb the phlegm, thereby relieving the baby from cold and cough. Warm mustard oil with a few kalonji seeds (nigella sativa) and 2 garlic cloves. Apply on baby’s chest, under the nose, back of feet and palms. Massage gently. You can wipe off the excess oil post massage. Add some soups to his diet. Soups are excellent comfort foods during cold and cough. You can provide warm vegetable soup or tomato soup. You can try chicken soup if your baby is 8 months and above. These soups increase the immunity of the body. It will help ensure that their energy levels don’t dip too much and will help them fight the illness.
