Answer: I can understand how difficult it must be for both of you.Cold and cough can be reduced to a great extent by drinking warm water. So,give baby only warm water in sips,so it soothes throat and reduces cough. Give steam from distance as it helps getting relief from blocked nose. Give saline nasal spray so nose does not get blocked. You can apply camphor oil so it gives relief to blocked and running nose. Give a decoction of ginger, turmeric, pepper and basil as it helps to get relief from cold and cough a lot.Give fever medicine. Sponging is must. If fever doesn't not come down in one hour you need to give higher medicine for fever. For medication please contact doctor as it should be given based on your weight and your condition.
