Yes steam works wonders on cold. Try giving it 3 times a day with a vaporiser but maintain a safe distance so that he or she is able to take it comfortably. Hold the baby in an upright position while you are doing that. Doctors suggest Nasoclear nasal drops for clearing the nasal passages 3 to 4 times a day if the child is too cranky.

steaming with a drop if eucalyptus oil will help with cold. also use nasal saline drops 1 drop in each nostril as many times as required, it is completely safe. for cough, making potli of ajwain and garlic and giving mild heat with it on baby's chest and back and keep that potli near baby's sleeping place. avoid wheat products in baby's diet... make baby sleep on her side. breastfeed by making baby sitting position...
