Have you been looking for a way on how to treat a baby’s cold whenever it occurs? In this post, I will be discussing what to use to treat a baby’s cold.
I will give a little definition of a cold in my own understanding. Cold can be said to be a result of the after effect of a virus called rhinovirus, which causes fifty percent of cold illness. There are several viruses that cause cold, but rhinovirus is more pronounced since it causes fifty percent of cold in humans.
Other viruses are coronavirus, influenza, parainfluenza, and respiratory syncytial virus, but these aren’t rampant like rhinovirus. Most of these viruses originated from Carmel and contact with these viruses are harmful to everyone not only babies.
For you to treat a baby’s cold you must know the signs and symptom of the cold. Then you can be able to get treatment for it. Treating a cold is very easy if you know the right product to use. I will be reviewing some product that can be used to treat a baby’s cold.
I will split this treatment method into four segments. First, are the signs and symptoms of a cold. Second is congested and running nose, try the Nose Frida. For Fever, knowing your baby’s temperature. Lastly is Coughing and what’s needed to get rid of it
The Signs and Symptom Cold
When these viruses come in contact with a baby due to cold weather or are being affected by an infected person, the outcome is very difficult for babies.
When a baby gets a cold the signs and symptoms are
1. Congested nose
3. Sore and itchy throat
4. Fever or high temperature.

In this post, I will be reviewing some of the cold products and where I got them and how helpful they were for my baby
Congested and Running Nose, Try the Nose Frida
When your baby’s nose gets congested due to a cold illness and it’s difficult for your baby to breath, you have to find a way to relieve your baby of this problem. Babies don’t know how to breathe through their mouth during the first few months of their life, so parents have to diversify a means of helping their babies have a free flow of breath.
That is where the Nose Frida is required. The Nose Frida is a nasal aspirator that helps you suck out snots and mucus from your baby’s nose without it entering your mouth. The mucus is deposited into a disposable filter and your child’s nose is free of mucus. Breathing is easy again.
It’s doctor’s recommended, 100% hygienic, safe and comfortable for mom and baby’s use. The compilation is easy. It has a nostril cover, snot catcher, nose hose and mouthpiece. It can be washed with soap and water or in a dishwasher.
Fever, Knowing Your Baby’s Temperature
Fever is one of the signs that your baby is suffering from a cold. How do you know the reading of your baby’s temperature? By using a baby-friendly thermometer to measure your baby’s temperature.
There are different types of thermometer that you can use to measure the temperature of your baby. I will be listing a few of them here, and whichever suits you, you can go for. They are
1. The ear and forehead thermometer
2. The anal and armpit thermometer
3. The pacifier thermometer
1. The Ear and Forehead Thermometer: It is very accurate and fast in reading. You can measure in Fahrenheit/Celsius due to the dual measurement device. It can be easily used by all not only for babies. It is very comfortable to use. It can be used to check temperature through the ear and on the forehead.
2. The Anal and Armpit Thermometer: It is a soft oral digital thermometer instrument. It’s an LCD head infrared thermometer which displays temperature. It is easy to use and to clean. For anal you need to use a lubricant like a vaseline to aid easy access.
3. The Pacifier Thermometer: This is designed specifically to suit babies. Baby’s temperature is easily measured in three minutes. It is safe for the baby because no mercury is used and harmless to the environment. It shuts down automatically after usage. It is easy to read and have high accuracy.
Coughing and Maty’s All Natural Baby Chest Rub
When your baby catches a cold, there is a tendency that he/she will start coughing cos that is one of the signs of a cold. Coughing in babies is a very difficult issue cos it can continue for a while and you just have to give your baby more fluid so as to avoid dehydration.
Sometime vomiting may be involved, but not to worry, the vomiting may happen as a result of throwing out the mucus that has formed in the system.
Here is a product I use for my baby when such incidence takes place. The Maty’s all natural baby chest rub to dissolve the mucus and flush it out with the help of a fluid (breast milk and also water if you have started giving him/her).
Healthy and Happy Baby
We all know that when you know how to treat a baby’s cold that your baby will be happy and healthy and you as parents will be relaxed to care for your baby in a normal and happy way, not in a tensed or scary way.
I have outlined the product I used for my baby when treating a cold and I know that if you also try these methods, you will get the same result I had. I wish you and your baby healthy and happy life.
