Thanks for posting your query.
Upper respiratory infections are one of the most common and contagious reasons of illness in infants and young children. The most typical form of upper respiratory infections is the common cold
. Common cold is often self-limited and usually last up to 7-14 days.
Here are some remedies i use to help them :-
Make his bed higher at one end by putting bricks under the legs. Make sure you make the higher end where his head is. This will help keep his airways clear and help his cough
This is what our doctor recommended us to do with our son:
Prop his bed up. get a warm mist humidifier and vicks
vapor rub for his chest.
Also Go into the shower with him, get it steamed up real good to help ease congestion.
Yes, you can give cerelac. But don't force to eat.
Hope I have answered your query.
