Mother's milk alone will not suffice to meet nutritional needs of a 10 mts old child. Frequent supplementation with home cooked food with some calorie enhancement is a must for proper growth of your child. For cough persisting for 1 month, proper evaluation is needed, pl consult your local pediatrician.

Improper nutrition will lower your child's ability to fight infection. A 10 month old child needs vitamins, iron and proteins which cannot be provided by mother's milk alone. Avoid giving him ice creams, cold drinks etc give him dalia/rice khicdi with dal, vegetables and curd. Give suji/rice kheer, custard, yogurt. Give him fruits specially banana, apple, anar and other seasonal fruits he can now have 3proper meals. Try variety of things without being disheartened. Parenting is a tough job. All the best.
