please give her honey in morning and if u feeded her by bottle than plz mix few drops of honey with her luke warm milk and hot oil massage.with please keep room tempurature lil bit stemy so dat her nose not be blocked.

Dr. Payal M

no honey fr 5 month old baby pls. no steamy room in this weather as well. u might over heat the baby. use nasal saline drops and check with ur pediatrician if there is no congestion in the chest.

Dr. Payal M

hey i meant no steamy room( high room temp) but definitively use the steam in the way as asha chaudhry has said.

asha chaudhry

hi sangeeta, as dr payal advised no honey to be given till 1yr old. pls tc

asha chaudhry..i really dont know how to steam little one... :-(

asha chaudhry

hi sangeeta so if u dont have a steamer (facial one) at home, u can order one aaram se - will be useful for many yrs :). in the meanwhile boil water in a steel container with lid on. remove lid, add a drop of nilgiri oil in it. if ur baby sits nicely in ur lap, place steel container on table and both of u sit near by (not very close, steam can burn) so the steam comes to baby's face at a comfortable temperature and distance. be sure u are far enuf that baby's hands cant touch the container. if baby doesnt co- operate, pls dont worry. whn baby is asleep in room, place the uncovered steel container in her room so that the steam reaches the direction of her nose :) pls dont keep steamer or container on bed! tc

Sangeeta(musicalmomy)

okk thank u dear asha chaudhry...

Apply drops of eucalyptus oil on her clothes. They help relieve the blocked nose.
