Tea, coffee or caffeine rich beverages or sugar added drinks should be avoided. These will further dehydrate the baby. Avoid use of cold water or cold juices and be very careful in using citrus juices. Citrus juices are great source of Vitamin C which helps to prevent common cold but in some babies if given during cold , may cause some allergic reactions. So use it with care. Do not start with any new food when baby has infection as baby's immune system is weak and risk of getting allergic reaction is very high. Oily, fatty or large meals should be avoided and concentrate more on giving liquid diet to the baby
