Answer: Hi dear, I would not advice you to apply Vicks rub to such a small baby.their skin is quite sensitive and it could give rashes.instead ,dab some niligiri oil,to help baby breathe through.Cold in babies is very common ,as the immunity right now stays week.keep breastfeeding to develop stronger immunity.give steam to baby,by keeping the steamer or boiled pot of water Inna closed room.you can also put few drops of eucalyptus oil in it.pump out the nasal mucous using nasal pump.use baby nasal saline spray in each nasal cavity.this will unblock the nose.massage baby feet,palm and chest with warm mustard oil.garlic and ajwain fumes can clear the congestion too.Älso refer the healofy app for daily updates on baby development and growth,as well as pregnancy care.it also gives you enormous info on post delivery baby care and diet.donot miss out!
