This Smile has returned after some 10-15 days which definitely felt like ages to me.

Winters are my fav season but since last year have been troubled way too much coz now it comes along with seasonal greetings-the cough and cold. Last year around same time Samarth had such bad cold that we had to hospitalize him to treat him well.He got chest infection and was puking mucus,literally. And since then everytime I see him having a runny nose I start getting Panic Attacks. That time was a trauma and I would never want anyone to go through it ever (including myself).


Certain things that I do to keep my baby bum safe are :


➡️ Loads of Vitamin C rich food and fruits during daytime only.


➡️ Keeping him well hydrated at all times


➡️ I heat Mustard oil, ajwain and garlic pods together and do a massage with the same on his chest,feet, back and forehead. 4-5 times in a day ,and it works like magic. Sometimes cold goes away in a day or 2. #momwin .


➡️ Steam steam and steam. This too 4 times a day atleast.


➡️ I keep an onion slice on inside his socks towards his feet.It helps to reduce congestion.


➡️ I ensure I start giving him the medicines too. This is what I had not done last time and the end result was hospitalisation.It may not be the case always but I definitely focused too much on #homeremedies in order to not give him one or two odd cold medicines. #didnthelp

My doctor said do everything you want but DO NOT IGNORE THE MEDICINES.My paediatrician is a family friend and I can trust her upon my life and yes I am never going to just bank upon #gharkenushke until samarth is of the appropriate age.


➡️ Bought a nose frieda and used it. I so regret not trying it before. It's such a saviour for baby's nasal congestion. #godsent


➡️ Try and stay Calm. This isnt happening now but yeah will get there with time.

Let me know what you do for your lil bub during such difficult times

Much helpful post.nd happy baby

Can heated mustard oil be used during daytime? Some say to apply only when baby sleep at night or it will have opposite effect?

Thank you.. I've saved this post. Much needed!

@SN yes it can be done during the day time also. The only thing you need to take care is that baby is not exposed to cold environment like is not put to bath or kept under fan right after the massage. Then it may have adverse effects

Thanks a lot

Very important post

Very useful post. I will keep in mind the onion ring remedy for sure.

Does keeping an onion slice in the socks really works?

It worked for me for sure
