since your query is on cough and cold , i dont find why the doctor should prescribe decolic drop for it. there must be some abdominal colic with it.wikoryl drop is perfectly safe for short term. plain saline solution is not very helpful for common cold since decongestion is essential which is not given by that

u can giv both the drops as such but as a pediatrician i wud try to limit medications to minimum.
I wud advice nasivion baby drops 1 drop in each nostril four times a day esp before night sleep.
Wikoryl -af drops as prescribed acc to wt.
Decolic drops only if the baby is uncomfortable ,abdomen is bloated with gas .
Try to keep the babys head n shoulder propped up.
Always burp the baby after feeds.
