Take your baby in to a steamed up bathroom. Let him inhale the steam for a few minutes. You could also steam the child with gentle steam, with a drop or 2 eucalyptus oil in the water.

Oil Massage:

Cold and dampness tend to cause inflammation and congestion in the baby’s chest. Gently massage some of the oil along the clavicle bones (the two horizontal bones at the top of the chest).

🎈After this, wrap the baby’s chest warmly, preferably with a flannel vest. Avoid the cold and draughts.

🎈Mum has to also watch her diet if breastfeeding. Dairy is always the first culprit, but sugar and flour are partners in crime. All cause mucous and allergies.

🎈 Roast some ajmo seeds and tie it into a bag with a piece of camphor. Pin to the baby’s vest.
