Answer: Hi Dear! It is absolutely normal when the baby has fever or cough and cold it makes their taste buds brand and they do not want to eat anything it is almost like as adults..
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 i hv started using it and this concoction can be given on a daily basis throughout the year to build immunity as well m yet to see a result which hopefully i will see in winters..
*Increase the intake of Vit C rich fruits like mausambi juice, orange, pomegranate, etc. all kinds of veggies..
Hope this helps!

Question: My baby is 1 year old and she is not eating anything.... spitting out .. please help me
Answer: Hello! You can follow these steps to help your child eat well
Sit and eat with your child.
Show your child what eating healthy is like. You are your child's best role model. They will learn to eat and explore new foods by watching what you do.
Offer new foods many times.
Children often need to see, smell, and touch a food many times before tasting it. Your child may need to taste a food many times before they eat it. Continue to offer new foods and include foods your child has refused in the past.
Give your child enough time to eat.
Young children learn by touching, smelling and looking at foods. Give your child time to learn about the foods you offer. Learning to use a spoon and fork also takes time. Plan time to sit and eat slowly with your child. A mess is also part of learning how to eat.
Try offering the same food in different ways.
Be patient. Keep giving your child foods made in different ways: raw, cooked (steamed, roasted), in stews, soups and sauces. If your child likes vegetables cooked a certain way, give them other vegetables made that same way.
