Plzz don't apply Vicks it's not advisable for kids... And do not give honey or turmeric to baby till the baby turns atleast 1 yrs.. No sweaters and salt should be given to babies rill age 1.. U can just sote in pan some carrom seeds along with garlic.. And tie it in an handkerchief and give that steam to ur baby on back and chest... Above the clothes...

Just give ur baby steam of vicks and apply vicks on his or her feet and put sock... Use nasal drops only if ur baby is feeling uneasy to breath(I never prefer nasal drop).. u can give pinch of turmeric and 2-3 drops of honey mix and give it to ur baby..

pls don't apply vicks as it is too strong for babies. it can be applied once baby turns 2 years old. u can check this on Google also. pls don't apply vicks.

You can try home remedies such as if the baby has sore throat try giving something hot to eat/drink like soup, joshanda etc. If there is a running nose and congestion you can massage the baby twice a day with mustard oil and clove garlic (garlic slices). Apart from this you can also apply Vicks in the sole of your child’s feet & cover it with thin socks. This will keep him warm in the night and he will have a sound sleep.
