Hi Desan,

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Babies who are still 3 weeks old have not perfect endurance like adults. This condition makes babies susceptible to infections, including those that make them cough and have a runny throat. The cause of infection can be due to viruses or bacteria. In addition to these complaints, this infection can also cause the baby's body temperature to increase (fever), muscle and joint pain, and various other complaints that cause him to be more fussy than usual.

In addition to infection, cough and mucus in the throat in infants can also occur due to other causes, such as allergies. This condition is closely related to genetic (innate) factors that cause excessive sensitivity to a substance that is considered dangerous by the body, when in fact it is not. In this condition, babies often also experience runny nose, sneezing, red, watery eyes, and so on.

Because the causes are generally mild, overcoming a cough and mucus throat in infants should not be done directly with medication. Especially at this age, babies should still be exclusively breastfed.

Try the following steps first:

Give the baby breast milk to maintain his immune system Keep the baby's environment clean and free of dust, cold, animal dander Dry the baby every morning before 9 o'clock in minimal clothing to help thin the mucus Bathe baby with warm water However, if it doesn't get better within 3 days, or other complaints arise, such as fever, shortness of breath, vomiting, or diarrhea, you should take your baby immediately to the doctor, okay?
