Cold and cough is due to allergy and low immune system as doctor said.
My daughter also had same problem when she was 9 months old, we use to visit pediatrician each month like you.

As doctor use to say there is no treatment of allergy in Allopath, only it can be controlled.
Allopath (antibiotics/ anti allergic drugs) will not give permanent cure but we can improve our immune (resistance) to fight with any infection and can get permanent cure.

But permanent cure is possible believe me and you should attempt it as I did for my daughter.

I am engineer and working in pharmaceutical company
My intension behind this write up is to give me self satisfaction by providing and helping people to get permanent cure.
If you need more information so mail me for more details you can reach me on “”

I will give you details of certified Nutritionist who helped us.

Pediatrician Dr. Suryakanta Baraha's  Response

generally by one year baby wt increases by 3 times.

sign of good health in a baby is that the infant is gaining weight

just offer him food frequently if he seems hungry. Many babies prefer to feed them selves rather than have a spoon pushed into their can add pieces of cooked vegetables, fruit. Let her try to feed himself .

the frequent cold and cough may be due to low immunity or allergic reaction.

allergies can adversely affect a baby's try to avoid the allergen.

you can add ghee and high-calorie baby foods, such as bananas, sweet potatoes,and proteins like dal in addition to milk.

take care
