Offer plenty of fluids. Liquids are important to avoid dehydration. Encourage your baby to take in his normal amount of fluids. Extra fluids aren't necessary. If he is on breast-feeding,keep it up. Breast milk offers extra protection from cold-causing germs...Consult nearest pediatrician for clinical examination they will do the needful.
