If she is on breast milk then continue with breastfeeding as this will help her to fight infection plus boost her immunity. If she is on formula then offer small feeds, feed in an upright position. In addition give her soft easily digestible foods, like, Oats/ragi porridge, soft Upma, idlis, soft khichadi, warm soups, made of veggies or dal. If you have introduced her to meat/egg, then give her chicken broth. It will actually work very well in treating her cold and cough. Keep her well hydrated with warm water or warm fluids. Do not add excess sugar to any of her foods as this may reduce her appetite.
