A. Frequent cold and cough in babies is normal as their immunity system is still developing... so you should consult the pediatrician regarding the medicines... also you should include the immunity boosting items in the food... also you can give him ajwain and garlic sek on the chest and keep the Ajwain potli near the pillow of the baby when he sleeps... give him indirect steam... You can use humidifier in the room... also massage his chest, back, palms and legs with mustard oil roasted with garlic... You can also put a few drops of eucalyptus oil on the baby's clothes or pillow, it's fumes will give relief from the congestion.... Also you can apply mustard oil... Just heat the mustard oil with garlic cloves in it till the garlic gives aroma.. then let it cool down.. and apply it when it is Luke warm. .. check the temperature before applying... Massage with the oil on the palm and legs, foot of the baby... Use pillow... Keep her in slightly upright position.... You can give him pedia nasal drop with the consultantion of the pediatrician... Maintain hygiene and cleaningness around the baby... Also the baby vomit very frequently during the cold and cough as like we adults they cannot spit out the phulgum, so they Vomit it out... So vomiting during cough and cold is also common... So don't worry if he is doing so much vomiting... Actually it helps a lot to clear up... Give him plenty of rest... Keep him hydrated... also breastfeed him more the breastmilk have the quality of changing its constituent as per the baby's need... It is the best medicines for the baby. .. You can Give diluted ginger juice or ginger water to sip on... tulsi water frequently in the day.. Also give him some healthy fluids like soups ,rasam, ragi, coconut water, khichdi, etc.. As the baby don't like to have solid while having any illness.. . Avoid cold aggravated food like Banana, curd etc. . . . Use nasal drops before sleeping and feeding
