Hi Nirmalajayanthi,
Asthalin contains salbutamol which is a bronchodilator i.e. it dilates the constricted airway passage as seen in bronchitis and asthma. If your baby is having congestion in chest, it will be of help.
Sound during sleep in babies can be due to blocked nose, a common cause.
It is advisable that you get your child examined by a Paediatrician.
I hope this is helpful to you.

Hi Nirmala,
do you have preterm twins or one baby?
Asthalin will help if there is wheezing.It is not for cold.
Nose block can produce sound when sleeping.Normal saline drops will help in this case.
Babies at this age take less food because they start to play!
