The cold weather has hit children hard, with many experiencing colds, coughs, and fevers. Niloufer Hospital says they have seen a 20% increase in these cases compared to usual.

Parents need to be extra careful with their children during the winter months. Colds, coughs, and fevers are common, and the number of cases can rise by 15-20% during this time. Newborns are especially vulnerable to the cold, so it’s important to keep their environment warm and dress them properly. Limit their time outdoors and make sure they are breastfed.
