      my daughter is having chest congestion and cough. She coughs mostly when she is sleeping. In morning she even had fever. I took her to ped 2 days back she gave her cough syrup / syrup for chest congestion and asked me to wait for 2-3 days and if the syrups don't help then put her on an antibiotic course. So finally we had to put her on the prescribed anti biotic course ( I try to avoid anti biotic as much as possible) but I would appreciate if anyone can give me any home remedies for her chest congestion & cough that can help my baby .

      azomax (4 ml) once a day for 3 days.

      she usually have an omelette everyday for lunch but since she is on antibiotic I don't want to give her anything that has garam taseer. Yakhni we tried to give but she refused.....she is very picky eater.

      she is also having 100 temperature now

      Do you have a vapour steam humidifier?? I keep it on all night in his room if he ever has a cough. You can also take her into the shower so that she can breath in the steam from the heat .... my doctor suggested these remedies .....

      The shower really helps with congestion.

      I will third the humidifer and the steam from a warm shower. Thats what kanzah's ped recommends when she has a viral cough. Also try putting vicks on her chest before bed time to hopefully provide some relief. Hopefully she will get better soon IA!

      Just went thru this whole awful cold and congestion thing with my girls. Hang in there!!! Elevate her head when she sleeps, it helps in keeping the mucus down. Also I run the humidifier and rub a little vicks on the chest because it seems to help a little. Also, boil a few stands of saffron in water, cool and then put a few drops in your baby's nose. My toddlers hate it but it helps thin out their mucus and clear up stuffiness. And like others have said, honey helps, hot liquids especially chicken noodle soup.

      give honey and avoid milk and cream based liquids.
      A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

      Ive heard to avoid cream based liquid because it only makes mucus worse but I was told this past week by a nurse that it's a myth. Im confused because all my life, the desi TRUTH is that u should avoid milk and creams when congested and now they are refuting it.

      I just had this problem with my 2 yr old daughter, even she got dehydrated and got admitted to hospital, home remedies for congestion are no plain milk or milk products as they tend to increase congestion.
      Boil milk in cinnamon stick(very tiny piece) n black cardamon (few seeds) n give that to drink.
      Steam bath is also effective, baby vicks also helps and so is the humidifier.
      Try to give chicken broth, I even added some egg as we do for soup for more energy.
      Half boiled egg (specially yolk) n most of all honey is excellent, even her ped. suggested to give honey (its also a sunnah) 2 times a day and no medicine.
