Your baby is small.  you can try this gentle tips for your little one... 2-3 drops of saline nasal solution were instilled to her twice a day....While sleeping , her head was kept raised with the help of pillows so that she could breathe easily...Heat a tava and dry roast 5 garlic pods and 2 tsps of ajwain. Once roasted , make a pouch out of it in a clean muslin/ wash cloth. This pouch was warmed , and rubbed on baby’s chest and back when she was sleeping.
