Answer: Hi! Cold are caused by viruses, climate changes and infections since the baby is only 4 months old, you try the following to give some relief. 1. Use saline water if the nose is stuffed- Saline water is best in stuffed nose it helps loosen the mucus. 2. Give her plenty of Breast milk-Breast milk is everything your baby needs now to take the germ out through pee. 3.You can give steam bath-steam bath also loosens the mucus and gets drained out from nostrils. 4. Musterd oil massage on the chest and feet-If the oil suits the baby please rub it on the chest and feet to generate heat this too will help loosen the mucus. 5. Elevate the baby upright so that he can breathe easyily and while sleeping make the pillow also a little elevated. Please consult the Paed before giving any medicine. *Steam n nasoclear drops. Steam 3-4 times a day - hold him and sit in a steamy bathroom (run a hot shower). Also, holding him upright as much as possible will keep him comfortable. Saline nasal sprays are good too and will help keep nasal passages moist and loosen the mucus. *apply babyvicks on clothes bedsheets for some relief. *If you are massaging massage with warm oil...that also bring relief *you can give ajwain sek in a potli too. Hope this helps!
