Hi Poonam. In addtion to the home remedies suggested by Bhavani, I would like to add a few things- Unfortunately we cant do much when babies this little have cough and cold. The cough will take some time to go away. Meanwhile, to help her feel better, you could sit with her in the bathroom with the hot shower running for steam to develop. The steam will help open up your baby's congestion. I used to do this twice a day. Also, you could apply a tiny bit of vicks on your baby's feet at bedtime and cover them up with socks. Vicks is normally not recommended for children under the age of 2, but I have tried this trick of rubbing a pea size dollop of vicks (under both feet) on my babies and it helped them sleep better instead of coughing and waking up every few hours. She may throw up food, which is completely normal. You may need to give her extra feeds as I am sure her appetite may be less now. Hope she feels better soon. Take care.
