Congratulations! By when are you planning for a baby?
Congratulations! How many weeks are you?
I have a
1 year old baby
Hello manu, From when she got the cold? I have just gently pressed her forehead and near the nose with cotton balls soaked and completely drained in hot water. Normally doctor will ask to give stream.. If she is suffering for a long time take her to pediatrician
Baby colds take a while to go away even if medicine is being given.. If you have already visited a paediatrician, you could try giving steam and put nasal saline drops. However, do not self medicate.
Sangeetha Karuna, your solution is nice... But with my son its a joke... when he got a cold he would not let me touch anywhere near his nose! 😅

Hi, Steam inhalation is a very good option. But u need not to hold the baby in a position that we generally do for older kids n adults. Keep steam little away from him, say near cot at head end or keep ur baby on ur lap. Secondly, as Sangeetha said, cotton or some cloth dipped in hot water will help. Third one, u take some coconut or gingely oil, warm it n apply on baby's chest. Lastly, U can put one drop of eucalyptus oil on pillow. See to that it is not too strong.
