Hi Anusha from how many days the symptoms are prevailing?? Is the baby having difficulty nin breathing and sleeping... If it has been already 4-5 days you must take the baby to a doctor for consultations.. otherwise you may give baby mother's milk or formula milk to keep him hydrated.. even 2-3 drops of honey can be given.. mentholated rubs can be applied on the chest area..

Helo @anusha if baby is suffering for cold and cough for a long period of time means its better to consult pediatrician. Some home remedies you can try for cold and cough is by adding garlic, ajwain leaves, ajwain, thulasi, betel leaves boil it in coconut oil filter it and apply the oil when it is warm in the back of ears, chest, neck, feet of the baby. It helped my baby to cure for cold and cough and still i am using this oil for massaging the baby as well. If you are a breastfeeding mother have hot water boiled with jeera. What you have is what baby receives. So you should not drink cold water. If baby have problem in breathing like blocked nose better consult pediatrician so that doctor will suggest nasal drops for your baby to clear blocked nose.
