Question: My baby having cold and cough any home made solution
How this helps:
Breathing moist air helps loosen the mucus in the nasal passages. A warm bath has the added benefit of relaxing your child.
What you need:
A humidifier, cool-mist vaporizer, or steamy bathroom
What to do:
Use a humidifier or a cool-mist vaporizer in your child's bedroom when she's sleeping, resting, or playing in the room.
Give your child a warm bath in a steamy bathroom. Let a hot shower run for a few minutes before getting the tub ready. Let her play in the bath as long as she likes (supervised, of course, unless she's old enough to be just within earshot).
If it's not a convenient time for a bath, simply turn on the hot water in the tub or shower, close the bathroom door, block any gap under the door with a towel, and sit in the steamy room with your child for about 15 minutes. (Bring a few books.)
