How do you treat a newborn with a cold?

Treatment of cold for newborns involved simple measures to ease their symptoms and keep your baby comfortable.

Ensure that they are hydrated. Use a humidifier and keep clearing their stuffy nose.

Keep the air moisturized with a cool-mist humidifier.

Avoid using over-the-counter medications, including fever reducers and cold medications, without a prescription from a doctor.

Check with your pediatrician before giving any type of OTC medication to babies under one year.

Avoid using antibiotics without consulting doctors.

Children should never be given aspirin when using vapor rub. It can be irritating to the airways.

Ensure that they are well-comforted, relaxed and getting enough rest.
