Thanks for your query.

The little baby is suffering from a viral infection , which usually occur in babies of day care centers.

Do you have any family history of allergic disorders?

Continue with the medications, it will take & days to settle.
Get your baby vaccinated according to protocols.

Give her steam and xylometazoline nasal drops , 2 drops in both nostrils three times a day.

Babies at this age are choosy eaters , so do not force them to eat , just keep them with yourself when you are eating.

Decrease the volume and frequency of milk and add soft diet like mashed meat, banana , cereals , rice and vegetables.

If you have any other query will be available for your help.
Wishing her a speedy recovery.

take care

Thanks for your follow up.

Its a really enchanting scene when your baby starts walking in front of your eyes.

If she can stand with support its good but she should be examined by doctor .
I recommend you to give her vitamin D and calcium supplements.

Iron polymaltose and ascorbic acid are the syrups you asked kindly consult your doctor.

Hope I answered your question , if you do not have any other clarification you can close the discussion and rate my response.

Wishing her a speedy recovery.
