Do ajwain sekh, take little ajwain seeds and roast them on a pan on heat, then take them in a small handkerchief and keep it next to ur baby when the baby sleeps, you can also give sekh on chest and back making sure it's not too hot by checking on your self first. you can also warm mustard oil with the ajwain seeds , warm it up and apply this oil on feet and chest, very good and effective for cough. Keep feeding lots of BM for cold., as that would be the only fluid baby will. taking. hope the baby gets well soon. .

Dr.Srujana Kona( PT)

Hi, Sorry Nidhi..don't use vicks...My paediatrician told me not use vicks for infants as it might cause allergy..

Priya Ghosh

yes avoid using Vicks for kids below age 2, mine had got rashes on her chest. I started using Vicks for her only once she was 5 years +
