My baby is 10months +. He has cough and stuffy nose. What can I use?
It's not advisable to use anything. There's no cure for the common cold. Antibiotics don't work against cold viruses. Try to make your baby more comfortable with measures such as suctioning nasal mucus and keeping the air moist. Take steps to make your baby more comfortable. These include moistening the air in your home and using saline drops and a suction bulb to remove mucus from your child's nose.
My baby of 3 months + has cough no fever and I have treated cough before and it came back again. Please what do I do?
The most important thing is to KNOW WHY he/she is having the recurrent cough and address it. Kindly see a paediatrician preferably a subspecialist in respiratory issue. You will likely see such at the paediatric respiratory clinic of the teaching hospitals closest to you." Kindly also note that cough syrup is not the treatment for cough but finding the underlying cause.

If you had described what you meant by watery it would have helped. However please note that EBF babies can poo up to 12 times in a day as long as the stools are normal. The normal stools for a baby is melon (egunsi like) it may seem watery with little seeds or paste. As long as the stools do not sink into the diaper like urine then there is nothing to worry about. But if you are still worried you may show the poo to your doctor. I hope this helps. Regards
