Soar Throat and cough in 1 year old baby

by Priya Rastogi
(Delhi)

Hi,


I have 1 year and 3 months old baby.
She gets cold and cough very frequently with loose motions.
May be this is coz she is under teething phase.
Please suggest possible home remedies to sooth her.
I am really tensed.

Thanks,
Priya

Sore Throat
by: Lisa

I’ve tried all sorts of coughing syrups, believe me, but none of them helps. Even though Nin Jiom Pei Pa Koa www.geocities.jp/ninjiom_hong_kong/index_e.htm does not eliminates the cough I like to stick to this chinese syrup I’ve been taking since I was a kid: Nin Jiom Pei Pa Koa. My grandfather is chinese, so I guess my mom got the advice from him. I was really surprised when I found that chinese market selling it here in Belgium. It does have a refreshing, soothing, sweetening effect…as long as it lasts…then back to coughing mode.

Tension with Children
by: Grandma

Hello Priya,

God love you, I can't imagine dealing with a 1 year old and a 3 month old baby on a daily basis. So my first suggestion is to find some time for yourself everyday, even if you have to go into the bathroom to take a few deep breaths and take a relaxing soak in the tub.

It could be the teething as far as the diarrhea but not the cough. Some fresh lemon juice and honey should relieve the cough and sore throat. Make sure you bring the honey and lemon to a boil and then let cool to room temperature. Give it by the teaspoon whenever you hear the cough. Just make sure you don't use raw honey on a child that young. For the diarrhea I have found that boiling some brown rice in extra water and drain the rice, give the child the rice water a few time a day should relieve the diarrhea. It's important to make sure you give plenty of fluids the worst thing to worry about is dehydration in a child that young.

Take care of yourself,

Grandma
