hey Pooja! nice remedies, even I follow these remedies for my daughter. I prepare one more concoction for my daughter for cough and chest congestion: 1-2 Doddapatre leaves ( ajwain leaves), 5-6 peppercorns, 5-6 Tulsi leaves, 1tsp ajwain and a small piece of ginger. boil all the above ingredients in 1/2 cup water too the water quantity reduces to half it's volume. Filter the preparation. give half of the concoction to your child in the morning and the other half in the night. You can also mix it with honey (as required) and then give it to your child! Truly works wonders!

Hi Priya. Boiling the nutmeg paste is not needed for any age group. I have given it to my son when he was 2 months old. But yes, start with very small quantities. It will surely help and will give u an idea about the amount reqd for your child.

as for nutmeg... please do not give a smooth paste as written by the expert here... your child will have loose motions. one just needs to rub it once or twice on the chakla with a little water and give. anything more than that is dangerous for your child.

Hi Niranjani. I understand your condition. I guess you should consult the paediatrician as this is an issue which needs allopathic treatment. On the other hand, you can try giving him the home remedies written on the blog. It will surely boost his immunity. All d bst n take care.

Hi Debolina. My take on vicks is already explained in my previous comment( harmless when applied to the feet). Moreover, juice made with boiled apples is best when taken empty stomach. I do this first thing in the morning for my son & surely this has boosted his immunity. And ya! raw fruits should never be consumed empty stomach.

Vicks is not recommended for applying in the nose or chest as it can block air passage in little babies, but it can be applied on the sole(as mentioned in the blog). Also, brandy can be rubbed on the soles for keeping the child warm through out the night.

Hi Priya. Vicks vaporub is undoubtedly unsafe to be applied in or near nostrils. In fact I would never recommend its application anywhere else except the sole of baby's foot. Its totally harmless when applied on the foot.

Except Apple juice, everything can be given to children below 6 months but in small doses. Apple juice can be given once you start semi-solids.
