1.Skip the Cold Medicine
Babies get sick a lot. During their first year, most have as many as seven colds — that’s a lot of runny noses and sleepless nights. How can you help your infant? Over-the-counter cold medicines aren’t recommended for children under 2, but a few all-natural remedies can help ease your little one’s symptoms and make you both feel better.
2.Give Plenty of Fluids
This thins mucus, and that can help with a stuffy nose. It also keeps them from getting dehydrated. Offer your baby breast milk or formula often. Don’t give them sodas or juices — they’re high in sugar. How can you tell if they are sipping enough? Check that their urine is light in color. If it’s dark, encourage them to drink more.
