My daughter was hospitalised when she was six months old, when she started to eat food, she was diagnosed with asthma. Only to find that she was allergic to some vegetables and this was causing a lot of phlegm in her lungs. Regular cough and nose blockages in kids is mostly caused by allergies.

Mommies, always check your baby, if you see something that you don't understand, go through hospital or clinic.

For colds, flu and coughs don't use cough syrups anymore, only use honey and lemon juice and a teaspoon a day keeps the flu away.

Best medicine for a cough that doesn't want to go away ps. I have a 2 year old, I do not recommended these to be given to babies younger then 1 .1x bottle of turlington, 1x bottol of borstel or 1x can of condensed milk mixed good can be given as they need it. Works on adults too.

I'm a first-time mom and we know how scary it is to be a single mom with a sick baby, my baby suffers from sinuses and it's been from birth but I don't panic and rush to the clinic or hospital every time I feel scared. I first take a breath and see how to help my baby breath better from a stuffy nose and sinuses I have cut out on all sweets and drinks as I'm still breastfeeding and found that it helps with congestions and tried the over the counter nasal spray for blocked nose and it helps well most days.

When my bundle of joy was born in March I used to struggle with him being colic, stomach massage and Bicycle kicks helped a lot. I would encourage, all moms to be to try it, it calms and soothes the wind.
