  1. Hello and thank you for posting us at Medimetry.Cough in infants can be due to viral infections or allergies.Does baby also have fever,nose block or nasal discharge,increased chest movements or any other symptom along with cough?What feeds is baby taking?Give baby exclusive breast feeding since breast milk contains antibodies which protect baby against viral infections and allergies.You may create steam in room by keeping a mist vaporizer or humidifier.This will help in preventing baby's exposure to dry air.If there is nose block then put 1-2 drops of nasal saline drops 3 times a day.If cough is more baby will need other medications like antibiotics or nebulization depending on clinical examination findings.Please visit a Paediatrician and get baby examined.I sincerely hope this information helped you.Wishing your baby a speedy recovery.Take care and best wishes!
