The way you describe, it looks like a condition called laryngomalacia. You can search for laryngomalacia. If it is similar, then you can write back to me. Or else take a video and send it to me.

Use regular medicine, don't put any thing in ear. Ear pain in cold is due to nasal blockage so use nasal drops, steam inhalation to relieve blockage which will take care of ear pain. Continue antibiotics for 14 days.

Your Newborn's Skin and Rashes

A newborn's skin is prone to rashes of all sorts. Fortunately, most of these rashes are harmless and go away on their own.

Common Rashes in Newborns

Pink pimples ('neonatal acne') are sometimes thought to be caused by exposure in the womb to maternal hormones. No treatment is needed, just time. They can last for weeks or even months on a baby's skin.
Erythema toxicum is another common newborn rash. It looks like red blotches with ill-defined borders that are slightly raised, and may have a small white or yellow dot in the center. Its cause is unknown, and it resolves without treatment after a few days or weeks.
Dry, peeling skin can be seen in almost all normal babies, but is especially noticeable in babies born a little late. The underlying skin is perfectly normal, soft, and moist.
Little white bumps on the nose and face (milia) are caused by blocked oil glands. When a baby's oil glands enlarge and open up in a few days or weeks, the white bumps disappear.
Salmon patches (called a 'stork bite' at the back of the neck or an 'angel's kiss' between the eyes) are simple nests of blood vessels (probably caused by maternal hormones) that fade on their own after a few weeks or months. Occasionally, stork bites never go away.
Jaundice is a yellow coloration on baby's skin and eyes. It is caused by an excess of bilirubin (a breakdown product of red blood cells). If the bilirubin level becomes sufficiently high, blue or white lights may be focused on the baby's skin to lower the level, because excess bilirubin can sometimes pose a health hazard.
Mongolian spots are very common in any part of the body of dark-skinned babies. They are flat, gray-blue in color (almost looking like a bruise), and can be small or large. They are caused by some pigment that didn't make it to the top layer when baby's skin was being formed. They are harmless and usually fade away by school age.

This is normal in first year of life to have viral infections often as immunity is still building. Normal medicines are ok. No need to give antibiotics every time.

Is the baby on bottle feeding. Then stop bottle feeding. You can give breast milk only. If you need to give other milk give it with spoon. Avoid bottle and nipple feeding. Next what medicine is being given. You need to add boiled water ( can be sweetened by adding raisins ) if fed on artificial milk. It has to be given by spoon and not bottle. Also need to screen for hypothyroidism. If you prefer private chat you can do it via this site. Happy parenting, regards.

If you are breast feeding and your periods have just resumed then wait for 3 cycles at least to see what happens. Normally the first few periods may be irregular . I would also advice you to use a good contraception in the meantime.

Teeth don't worry, as they can be delayed without any reason. Further diet of 11 month old child is almost 900 to 1000 calories a day divided in six home made feeds, 300ml milk products at interval of three hrs.
