A. occasionally cough is acceptable and Mostly  cough cold episodes are viral in origin.   They may subside by 3 -9 days  No need of any medication if mild.   If cough and cold then need steam inhalation, nasal decongestant drops (nasivion baby nasal drops 1drop in each nostril 3-4 times a day for 3 days).  And cough syrp or drops as per babys  Cough condition  (wet or dry).  Keep ur baby well hydrated in cough cold  episodes  Proper hand washing, keeping away ur baby from other infected persons, exclusive breast feeding ur baby till 6months of the age, will help for fast recovery.    If decreased urine output, refusal to feed, decreased activity, breathing difficulty  Then need to consult with nearest pediatrician once.
