hi Jyoti! since your baby has cold, he might be facing difficulty sucking milk. please make sure his head is lil raised and not flat while having milk . also give in small quantities frequently as the baby has cold and might also face difficulty in breathing. also before feeding him take a bowl of lukewarm water(please check temperature beforehand, on your hands, it should be just warm and not hot), add a pinch of salt to it and with a dropper put just a drop in both nostrils.. this would cause irritation ans he would sneeze which would make his nasal passage clear and help him suck better. u can try this two to three times. but pleae remember to check the temperature of water on your hand first and also do not put more than a drop in each nostril. please consult your pediatrician for cold.
