Natural Cough Remedies for Babies
- Hits: 14809
Thankfully there are quite a few natural remedies that you can use to calm your baby’s cough.
If your baby seems congested, take her in the bathroom and run a hot shower. The steam from the shower will help loosen that congestion in her lungs.
Putting your baby in a warm (not hot) bath can have the same effect. Make the bath even more effective by adding a few drops of eucalyptus, sage or thyme oil into the bath water. The vapors from these essential oils will help open baby’s airways, allowing her to breath easier. The vapors from these oils will also sooth a sore throat.
If your baby’s cough is caused by croup, sometimes the best course of action is to wrap her up warmly and take her out in the night air. The cold air sometimes calms the inflammation in the upper airways.
