    Breastfeeding or just giving plain water helps clear the throat. You could also turn on the humidifier in baby's room to avoid dry cough. Saline solution for blocked nose helps.
    These days it is not safe to give cold/cough medicine to babies and you cannot give honey to a 6 month old baby. For toddlers ( 12months plus) you could give honey & lime. Hope it helps. If there is no fever and the cough does not become worse then there is nothing to worry, However if the cough symptoms becomes worse ( heavier cough, frequency is increased) within 3 days take the kid to the doctor or call up your nurse.

    If you are breast feeding, Mix a pinch of turmeric powder with breast milk
    and give to the kid. You can mix with the formula too. But be careful, it should
    be a pinch of turmeric powder only.

    hi i think ur son became allergic with juice so u stop him giving that for a while and for cold and cough i think u know pan ka patha on that u rub some castor oil and turmeric just heat the leaf slightly and keep that on his head i think it works but i am not sure this is the home remedy which my mother gave for my cousin's son or u can give him tulasi ka ras mixed with a drop of honey or karakkaya i dont think that u can find this there in US so these two r only options ok take care bye
    DONT MAKE THE LEAF TOO HOT

    dear ramya,
    musambi will not bring in the cough, hope u diluted to give him that, it could be the weather or exposure, apply castrol on the neck, and give enema if you have a can and put a wet pack dont worry nothing will happen dip the towel in cold water and remove all the water then put it on his stomach it is more due to heat, keep away from pickles and hot stuff until the baby is fine,that is if you are breast feeding the baby, sunkan

    This worked for my LO-
    Ajwain leaf+tulsi-pound and extract half a teaspoon of the juice.Add a little bit of jeshthamadhu(its a root available in ayurvedic shops) in the form of juice and give twice a day .You may mix with BM if desired.
    This is an excellent home remedy for cough.

    Deepa.
