Question: My 9 month old son catches cough and cold very frequently... Can anyone suggest me natural way to cure...
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. Vapor rubs: Vapor rubs may help kids sleep better at night. Research suggests they make the cold sufferer feel as though she's breathing better by producing a cooling sensation in the nose. You can find vapor rub products made specifically for babies 3 months and older. Natural vapor balms are available, too, if you'd prefer not to use products that contain petroleum or paraben.
