Food For Nursing Mothers When The Baby Has A Cold And Coughs?
Halodok, I want to ask, my baby has a cold and a cough, what medicine can be given to the baby naturally and if the mother eats oily or spicy foods has an effect on the baby’s cough, because it is still suckling?
Thank you for the question.
Babies who have the flu and cough can indeed worry parents, and we understand that. In general, flu and cough experienced by infants is a relatively harmless thing, and usually this is a form of upper respiratory tract infection caused by a virus, but in rare cases can also be caused by bacteria or allergic reactions, depending on the symptoms and course of the disease . This condition can heal on its own in a matter of a few days with simple treatments at home without the need for drugs such as:
Gives warm steam to the baby to relieve nasal congestion. Able to cook warm water and steam the nose with steam from the warm water. Apply warm balm around the baby's chest or back. If the baby has a fever or fuss, it can give the baby drops of paracetamol. Provide adequate nutrition for infants by giving more milk. Basically the food eaten by the mother will not directly affect the quality of breast milk, but mothers are still advised to eat healthy and nutritious food. If this condition continues for more than one week and shows other symptoms such as high fever, shortness of breath, and the pull of the chest wall, then parents can see the child to the doctor.
Hopefully this information helps and hopefully get well soon.
