Nice remedies i'd say and all the ladies (whether facing this problem or not) should read this post.
Nice job rekhasneha!
First thing that you need to do if your new born is suffering from cold and cough is to stop giving bath to it and then covering the baby with warm cloth. If the health condition of the baby worsens day by day then better consult doctor and don’t take risk. Since the baby is very small don’t even try any home remedies as it might be allergenic.
As parents we are so worried when our child falls ill, and we can never bear it, it’s horrible when a child is suffering from cold and cough. Well for cold and cough in babies try this simple remedy.
• Heat 2 Tsp of milk and add turmeric to it and feed your baby. This is the simple and quick remedy for cold in new born, infants.
New born babies are very sensitive to any kind of strong doses of medicine. Better heat warm mustard oil with few cloves of garlic. Allow it to cool for a minute and give a soft massage over its body with the oil. Never give bath at such condition. If necessary wipe the body with a wet cloth dipped in warm water. People used to give heat to the body by pressing a warm cloth over the infant's body. For this you can just press a warm cloth over a hot pot or utensil. Press the cloth over the baby’s body softly and it will help soothe the baby from cold affect.
