3 months old baby

Question: My baby is 2 months n 28 days old, he has been suffering from coughing late night regularly since last 50 days. Have seen doctor, and as per doctor it will go by time and prescribed asthalin for 7 days n we followed him and it still didn't go. Have blood test and x-ray done a which came out everything normal. But I am worried because it makes him awake n made cry. Don't know what do for this prolonged wet cough. Sometimes, it goes with the nasal drop, which lasts for only one or two hour. Any suggestion would be great. Note: have started using nebulizer at home ( with normal saline), again it's not working.

Answer: Dear my daughter also suffered with this so firstly before sleeping give steam to baby and then apply some baby vicks on baby's chest, neck and back and then raise baby's head with 1 bid pillow and make him sleep on sitting position that will prevent cough in baby..

Answer: Dear for cold and cough I always give home remedies for my daughter. For cold...put some garlic cloves in a thread and make the child wear it like a neckpiece the garlic cloves should touch the chest it will help control the running nose,chest cogestion. Also u can make an oil to massage at night. Take mustard oil and put methi dana,ajvain,garlic and neem leaves. Heat the oil till all dese ingredients are golden brown. Let it cool and strain the oil. Heat the oil when u use it. U can massage the chest ,back and feet with this oil before the child sleeps. Make sure to make the child wear socks after u massage with this oil it will double the effect. Hope this all helps 😊

Answer: New borns do sleep most part of the day. Typically for 16-18 hrs per day. Demand feeding is best,They know when they are hungry. Try and give him your milk as much as possible and even after that if you feel your milk is not sufficient, U may use formula. This will not reduce your supply of milk.

Question: Hi,our baby boy is a year and 7 days old. Last two days his voice sound is too hard to cry ,rough and like bark.but symptoms like cold infection. Pls tell us what should we do now can we take him to Doctor,?Note we have given only one drop honey for him taste is it cause voice problems
Answer: Hi dear honey does not cause any voice problem.. and the Husky voice that the baby has due to cough and cold will take some time to go away completely at least as long as the cold is there in the body it will remain and slowly it will go away and there is nothing to be worried about the Husky voice of the baby the concern is cold and cough.. Cough and cold is usually due to infection and fever indicates that body is fighting against the infection, in fact we are also facing same problem with our baby but after a lot of reading i found some basic easily available things which can help it cure and strengthen the immunity. *You can give honey and ginger in every hour to the baby.. *Try honey with cinnamon, pinch of Turmeric and pepper. Works like magic.. *Increase the intake of Vit C rich fruits like mausambi juice, orange, pomegranate, etc. all kinds of veggies.. Hope this helps!
