Brief Answer:
can take it thrice a day

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear, thanks for trusting health care magic.
Yes you can safely take it thrice a day as and when required.
Also take tablet cetrizine twice a day for 3 days along with steam inhalation.
Both these tablets are safe for both mother and baby.
Avoid cold beverages and any outside food item as far as possible.

Brief Answer:
High chances of catching cold

Detailed Answer:
Yes there are chances of baby catching cold from you so try to breathe away from the baby as much as possible, avoid kissing or sharing food.
Wearing mask for as long time as possible is also a good option but it is difficult to follow.
Take care.
