Every mom is worried to use antibiotics on their kids, while new moms worry is much more. I am one among them and found these remedies from seniors which are very helpful and easy to do. Fever: place baby in banana leaf for two days and get normal body temperature. Cold: apply castor oil and turmeric on betal leaf, warm the leaf and place on baby's head. Sleeptalk: keep talking to baby in sleep in positive present tense and find magical results. Happy parenting!!!

Home Remedies when your infant/toddler experiences phlegm accumulation: When babies or toddlers has a combo of fever, cough, cold and congestion, chances of phlegm accumulation is mostly there if the treatment doesn’t happen at the onset. On the other hand, baby’s own defence called “acquired immunity” would still be developing in their development stage, so the infection spreads very quickly that tends to make them weak, tired, lose weight and sleepless nights (parents too). Phlegm Accumulation reliever: (Tried and tested home remedy) a) Heat organic mustard oil/olive oil, b) add ½ tbsp. fenugreek seeds, asafoetida, ½ tbsp. carom seeds (ajwain in Hindi), grated garlic, grated onion (5 ingredients always good to go) to it. c) Sieve the mixture after heating the oil &contents. d)Rub this oil at the rib cage (front & back) while sleeping, it is generally recommended to keep the chest and body parts near rib cage warm. You may pouch the sieved out part in a clean muslin cloth(warmed), which can also be used to rub around the baby’s chest. This remedy is really helpful to loosen the phlegm and dissolve the accumulation. Things to Remember: 1)Keep the head of the baby always raised with the help of pillows to allow easy breathing. 2) They are switched to liquid and semi-liquid diets so that they do not vomit* much. *Vomiting at this time is also okay till the time it is not too much, which should be substituted with equal amount of cooled boiled water or ORS. Mucus and phlegm usually comes off their body either through the excretion as motions or vomits. So, don’t worry, you are good to go till the time there is no major change in their activities. Interesting fact: Nursing babies can drink and swallow at the same time as their swallowing mechanism is still developing. As the baby gets older and starts solid food too, they get more prone to choking and require undivided attention to what they are swallowing.

It adds bulk to your stool, giving the muscles of your GI tract something to grab on to, so they can keep food moving along. Aim for 20 to 35 grams of fiber a day to stay regular. Foods particularly high in fiber include bran cereals, beans, lentils, oatmeal, almonds, barley, many vegetables, and fresh and dried fruits. If you’re constipated and taking in additional fiber, be sure to drink more water than usual to keep your stool soft and easy to pass
