Cough and Cold Home Remedies

For Cough n Cold-of babies
Use Ajwaing leaves....Warm it on tava(roti maker) just 2 min...
Then press it with hands and extract juice of it. Give this to your kid once a day for 3 days. Not more than three days.
This will relieve your kid immensily.
Ajwain leaves are natural and safe. I give the same for my baby.
Also ajwain leaves are use for pakodas. They taste good.

Dry Cough :

    Sree , I ve been under the impression not to give oil or oily food when there is cough. There are chances they may aspirate and develop pneumonia .

    Is it ok to give ghee ? just interested to know . Here it is the season for dry coughs . We are depending on luke warm tulsi water the most .

  5. hi Krishna, these are the remedies suggested by experienced moms who have put them to practice and got results. I personally have never tried this one, so not much help here.

    When there is phlegm I do not stop ghee but I lessen the normal quantity that I give to her.
