No parent wants to see their baby sick, and the common cold is no exception. Babies haven’t had time to build up their immune system, so they can catch colds more easily. Unfortunately, colds are usually viral and can’t be treated with antibiotics. What you can do, though, is try to make them more comfortable. Don’t worry, your baby’s cold should get better in a week to 10 days.
Even though there isn’t a cure for the common cold, there are a couple of things that can help.
The Raising Children Network says it’s essential to keep your baby’s fluids up. For babies under six months, offer extra breastfeeds or bottles. And if your baby is over six months, continue feeding as usual but offer extra clear liquids, like water.
If your baby has a fever, is in pain and over one-month-old, you can offer paracetamol. Make sure you read the label for the recommended dose. Ibuprofen can be given to children three months and over. Do not give children aspirin.
