my baby is 1 month old nd i think he has catched cold while bathing yesterday. there is also a sound coming as he is breathing as if there is some cough. should i rub vicks vaporub onto his chest or only bf will help? should i give him a mustard oil+garlic massage?

hi anon as baby is still very small pls take him to ur dr. pls dont rub vicks on him - it will burn - his skin is too delicate. instead pls steam adding a drop of nilgiri oil. Why you must opt for steam for you and your child? massage is fine. Sheeba Vijesh pls share potli magic :) tc. hope baby feels better soon

plzz dnt do anyth. the weather is like this n lot of viral is there. baby getting cold n cough right nw is very common. plzz wait for 3 to 4 dys it will be fine by itself. n yes ur milk will def help to heal the baby n kill bacteria.

yeah i agree with u Sohini Bairagra

as baby is small consult your doc.. meanwhile you can use saline nasal drops for blocked nose.
dnt use Vicks vaporub. and massage with just warm mustard oil will help.. apply oil on nails too...

Hey anon.... My baby used to catch cough n cold frequently when she was a month old I would suggest just breastfeed ur baby and he will be fine in few days... Don't go for any medicines
