Manvi Bhandari

U can put saline drops 2 each in both nostrills , give ajwayan potli ka sek, put easybreathe eucalyptus oil one capsule drops on baby clothes and bed where she sleeps. its smell will give baby relief from cold and cough. this works best for me..

Sheeba Vijesh

she must be having blocked nose.. use saline drops and try steaming... also make baby sleep on her side...

Janu Thillai

cn i apply heated vicks on her chest nd back??

Sheeba Vijesh

oh no.. don't... there is actually a fine print on vicks bottle which says it shouldn't be heated... no one notices it actually... always try to use natural methods as much as possible with babies.. saline drops and methods suggested by manvi bhandari are all 100% safe...

radhi anand

if the cold is congested in chest, my mom used to apply vicks in betel leaf(vetrillai) gently show it in a lamp fire as the vicks start to melt place it on baby chest. Make sure it is warm and not so hot

radhi anand

ohh .. thanks Sheeba.. Janu, sorry pls don't do that..

Sheeba Vijesh

its ok radhi anand, we all learn something new everyday... 😊

Janu Thillai

you can apply very little Vick on the babies feet and put socks on overnight. And take her to the bathroom and put on hot shower for 10 min good way to take steam. do it a few times during the day.

Manvi Bhandari

pls dont apply vicks for babies.
