My baby is premature and she was 820 gms in weight when born. Now she is 9 months old with 5. 3 kg. For the past 3 days she is suffering from cold and cough. Our doctor suggested to take nebulization daily morning and evening. Also prescribed Histafree cough syrup, she vomits everything after take the syrup. Now doctor asked to stop that syrup, but continue nebulization treatment till reduce the cough problem. We r following the same. Apart from this, do we have any other home made/treatment which reduces cold and cough? she still struggles because of cold and cough. Request your suggestions on this please...

take cotton cloth and a potli of roasted ajwain and garlic together .... roast garlic and ajwain till u see the ajwain sprinkling out and garlic smell ... keep this potli near the nose while sleeping in a closed room ... rub the potli on the babies hands front back both.. pillow .. and keep it near the nose.... u can do this 3 4 times a day ... make sure the baby doesn't come out if the room after doing this for atleast 2hrs ... baby will be able to sleep properly ... And for cough burn mustard oil with garlic, ajwain ... make this oil in advance for future also.. give massage to the baby with this oil daily to full body specially the chest area and back.... And just with ur finger put a pinch of this oil in the nose also .... baby will sneeze and nose will open up... baby will never catch cold... do this daily...

Hi Venkat... you can heat coconut oil wit some garlic, beetle leaves stem part @ one end of leaves, 2-3 small onion, set it to room temperature and apply it on chest, neck, forehead, nose, tummy bottom morning, evening and night before bed time.. it absorbs cold and get it cured.... another method is try to give tulsi juice wit one drop of honey in it to baby... it's good for cough and if she vomits also it pull out all saliva wit cold...
