Good Night Gabriela,
Thank you for asking on the HealthReplies.com forum.
It is not uncommon for parents to panic to find their baby suffering from a cold cough. It should be noted that a baby's immature immune system makes babies more susceptible to various diseases, including coughs and colds. Generally, babies can catch cold cough 2-3 times a month. In principle, if the complaint is a cold cough without difficulty in drinking breast milk, the baby can still sleep well, not have a high fever, you don't need to worry, generally it will recover in 3 days. However, if there are any of the following signs, you should check your baby to a doctor:
Difficulty drinking breast milk High fever Difficulty breathing Cough cold for more than 3 days Efforts you can do to reduce baby complaints:
Keep giving ASI Bathe the baby with warm water Give hot steam: prepare a bowl filled with hot water dripped with eucalyptus oil, place it in several corners of the room so that the baby can inhale it Keep the place clean, especially the nursery, bed linen and pillows. morning sun, don't forget to use a special sumblock for babies before. Avoid giving drugs without a prescription from the doctor. So hopefully the baby will get better soon.
