A. Babies at this age can get cold upto 7-12 times a year. Nothing to worry. You can use humidifier in the room...this will keep the air moist in the room and will not allow the mucus to harden. It will help to cure a runny nose and nasal congestion. Keep the sleeping position slightly inclined and head slightly raised.  In an elevated position basically to ease breathing. No home remedy medicines are suggested for such small babies especially giving orally. If you are using saline drops then store bought  are safer than home made as there is no risk of bacterial growth. Please continue to breastfeed well as that is the best and safest form on nutrition for your baby and build immunity. The antibodies present in the breastmilk helps tye baby's bidy to build immunity against all types of germs and aids in proper hydration. Eat healthy and breastfeed your baby well. Baby's clothing should be such to protect the chest from cold. Keep baby's and your hands clean with water or baby wipes so that the germs don't spread. Garlic and ajwain are known for its anti bacterial and anti viral properties. Dry roast 2 big cloves or garlic and ajwain on a tawa and once cooled maje it into a potli or tight pouch with a clean muslin cloth. Place it near the baby cot or cradle where the baby sleeps. The ajwainy garlicky smoke from the potli will help the baby to open the blocked nose and relieve from congestion.
