hi Amlan... cold n cough are result of congestion in baby's respiratory paths or chest. so it's advised to give baby bath with warm water... n pouring water slowly on his chest n head.. warm water will loosen the secretions n blockage will be removed... baby will feel better .the congested secretions will come out easily.. so it's a myth not to bathe baby during cold n cough. just that take care of temp variation.. after warm water bathing,babys body take 20-30 minutes to return back to accustomed room temp... upto then keep him away from direct air like ac or cooler or high speed fan... so make sure when you dress or undress baby,its not cold or varied much.
