Home remedy for Cold & Cough for infants below 1 year,

Remedy 1)Take an iron & a cloth. Make a ball of cloth with Ajwain in that. tie a knot tightly like a ball. & take that ball place on hot iron & then put on baby chest & back. This is called i hindi,'Sekhna'. Please note BEFORE PLACING ON BABY'S CHEST CHECK ON YOUR HAND & DO NOT PLACE VERY HOT ON BABY'S SKIN.'

Remedy 2)Take 7-8 pieces of Jayfal (Nutmeg)
remove the shell & only take the inside seed & grind in mixer. Please note the Jayfal mix should be made very soft means it should be grinded very nicely. Then in the night take this jayfal mixture & put few drops of water. Mix it well & now apply this on the infants chest, back & on the head. This mixture basically extracts the cold from the baby's chest.

I have tried with my son since he was two months.

All the mothers one humble request,

'PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT GIVE ANY ANTIBIOTICS & AVOID TAKING THE CHILD TO DOCTORS EVERY NOW & THEN.'
