I'm a new mom and my baby has been coughing and sneezing quite frequently lately. It started off as just occasional coughs and sneezes, but now it seems to have gotten worse. I'm a bit nervous about taking them to the doctor because of the ongoing pandemic situation. I was wondering if there are any home remedies that could alleviate their symptoms.
My baby is around six months old and is otherwise healthy. They've been breastfed exclusively until now but we've started introducing solid foods recently. They're generally happy and active but have been a bit fussy and restless at times because of the coughing and sneezing.
I would be really grateful if anyone could suggest some tried-and-tested remedies that could help soothe their symptoms. I've been giving them lots of fluids and keeping them warm, but maybe there's something else that could help.
Thank you in advance for your help!
