Babies and colds

How long does a baby’s cold normally lasts? I was told about 2 weeks but it hasn’t seen to be going away. What did you do to kick your babies cold, fever and congestion away?

Things to try:

Tylenol

Motrin

Hylands homeopathic cold tablets and vitamin C tablets along with homeopathic cough syrup for babies

The humidifier and steam from the bath

 

Elderberry drops only for the beginning of the congestion.

If it just doesn’t seem to go away try a few drops of saline in the mouth every few hours. It will substitute for gargling with salt water. Since babies can not gargle the saline when swallowed will help take out the congestion by throwing it up or loose stool. This was recommeded by my holistic doctor Dr. Perlman from Miami Beach Pediatrics. I tried it on my son and it has worked he has been able to take out the congestion that has been stuck in his chest for 3 weeks.
