Tried tested home remedies for cold in babies

One of the most widespread ailments among children is the common cold. As the seasons change, colds spread among your tiny tots, which make them irritable. Due to the cold, babies become fussy and also lose their appetite. They behave cranky in this situation which also causes us moms a lot of stress! So, taking proper care of our babies is necessary to soothe their cold symptoms.

There are various home remedies for coughs and colds for babies, and by using these you can make them feel better. Some of the home remedies for treating colds among babies are as follows:

Mustard oil - Take some ajwain seeds and garlic gloves and roast them in mustard oil. Grind, and apply the paste on the soles of your baby’s feet and chest. It will provide a great deal of relief to your child.

Garlic cloves - Take some garlic and make a potli (small cloth sack) of it and place it near your baby during the night. Your baby will feel better and more relaxed the next day.

Steam - Give your baby some steam through a steamer or a steamy bath. It will give instant relief to your child. This will help soothe the cold in babies.

These are some of the home remedies which make your life easier and your baby more comfortable. I have tested these remedies myself. I also use these cures when my baby catches a cold and she feels better the same day! Using these remedies is quite simple and costs almost nothing. Try these easy remedies and make your child happy and healthy.
