please visit to doctor first....don't try home remedies

doctor might have prescribed you medicines.. just give them properly.. for nose blockage use saline nasal drops.. let your baby sleep whenever she wants.. nothing much can b done for small babies.. just wait fir the medicines to work..

I'm facing the same thing . put ajwain potli next to baby and also warm and put on chest and back . try putting it baby head higher so the coughing is minimal .

Hi Jayshri! When my babies were little and even now I find steaming an effective and safer option when they have cough and cold. With baby as young as yours you may have to hold the baby and use the steamer. It provides relief. Wishing your baby a speedy recovery :)

Apply some  Eucalyptus oil on the  chest,  back and  ribs.  It helps

Steam is best for little babies provided you give it to them from a safe distance. I have also tried roasting carrot seeds and stuffing them in a handkerchief and making a potli out of it. Bring it close to your baby's nose and let her or him inhale the minty smell. Keep this potli next to the baby when he or she sleeps ro prevent nose blocks. consult your doctor on whether nasal drops are necessary. they are safe for babies.

Ajwain is best,  u can add some Ajwain seeds in massaging oil and rub that oil on baby's chest and back.  It helped me a lot.

Hey jai shri, i had experienced the same . when she coughs i felt a heart break. As a new mom, these things seems to b quite tough. But do not worry. As your paediatrician said, it will get subsided in a week. Feed her when she demands as Cough will make her throat go soar. As ur baby s now three months, if u have a streamer, put some ajwain and let her inhale. It will ease her nose block. She will be alright soon. Cheer up. 👍

its this season jai shri... breastfeed as much as possible.. make potli of ajwain and crushed garlic and use it as "kizhi" on chest and back on low heat. and keep this near baby. give steam with a drop of eucalyptus oil...
