General & Family Physician Dr. Ashwini Kolur's  Response
Cough and cold in children is common as they are very much susceptible to infections. Majority of times its viral infections and they are superimposed with bacterial infections, so they are treated with antibiotics . Symptoms of your child will subside with this. No need to worry until your child is active, taking feeds regularly and breathing normally. If the symptoms persists or any of the above complaints appear then i advice you consult paedtrician and get one chest x-ray done.
Wish speedy recovery and good health to your child
