Dear lybrate-user, hope you are breast feeding your baby. As it will protect the immune system of your baby. For cold, use nasal saline drops in each nostrils 2 to 3 times. Let him lie in a head elevated position. Use yashti madhu churnam + honey, make into paste and let him leak it in small dose 2 to 3 times. Or sitopaladi churnam with honey. Heat til oil with small quantity of saindhava lavana (available in ayurveda shop. And apply on chest, lukewarm. Cover him fully when taking out. Don't lie him straight under the fan or switch off ac. Avoid head bath for 3 days. Bath him with warm water. If fever is present, show immediately to your nearest paediatrician.
