Q:

Please help!!! My Lo had temperature 2 days ago after which it subsided. He had little bit of cold and sneezing every now and then but since yesterday he's not feeding at all. I'm forcefully feeding him but he's only taking 30-50ml every 4-5 hourly. Please suggest what should I do? He's happily using pacifier but not taking bottle and I'm noticing a new thing that he's holding his ears and doing itching sort thing.

cough and cold not just give nose blockage but also blockage in ear and phlegm accumulation in throat. Please check his ear and clean it. Give lil warm water to drink before feeding..it will help in disolving the phlegm. Add 3-4 drops of nilgiri oil to pillow where he will sleep. Feed frequently.

During these days they feed less. it's ok. Once cold subsides...they will be normal again.
