These Fantastic Home Remedies Will Save Your Toddler From The Common Cold

Since this is winter time, a lot of toddlers suffer from colds and flu due to the chilly weather. In Australia, doctors hardly ever prescribe antibiotics until the condition is very critical. So it is better to have some home remedies handy especially when you have young children at home. These tips were provided by Fizza Khuhro. I am posting them as I have used these too and can vouch for their effectiveness for treating sore throat, common colds, flu and fever

1. Ajwain & Lashan Potli (Carom Seeds and Garlic Cloth Wrap)

Roast ajwain (carom seeds) in a pot till brown(not black), add chopped garlic to it till its dry but not completely burnt. Take it off from the stove and wrap it in a malmal cloth (Light cotton cloth). This is called a potli in Urdu. Massage the chest and back with this potli. This relieves congestion and cough.

2. Vicks On The Feet

Apply Vicks on the feet and make the child wear socks. -this relieves cough.

3. Haldi Doodh (Milk With Turmeric)

For immunity, add half a cup of milk, a pinch of haldi (turmeric), a strand of safferon, one elaichi and boil. When done add a teaspoon of honey when it’s slightly cool and drink up. For mothers who don’t use fresh milk you can boil the mixture in water and then add formula after your done cooking it.

Note: I use milk and turmeric only and it works just fine.

4. Lashan and Sarson oil rub (Garlic and Mustard Oil Rub)

Heat sarson oil (Mustard oil) on the stove and add chopped garlic to it. Once you see the garlic get totally black, you take it off, strain and keep the oil aside. Warm it slightly before applying it on the chest and back. – relieves congestion and cough.

5. Steam / Nebulise

To ease the airways, either give steam or nebulise with normal saline with a cold mist.

Note: A tip my sister in law gave me for nebulising is to use a pressure cooker. Heat some water in it, let the steam build up and when you let go of the valve at the top and when the steam comes out, put your child in front of that steam. It will ease the clog in his nose/ears.
