Any recommended paediatric TCM centre or physician for 6 month old baby ( for coughs and flu)?
I've read that Herbal Basic TCM is a great place to get TCM advice for families with small kiddies. It is a specialty centre that focuses on safe and natural treatments for kids especially if they have conditions like allergic rhinitis, sinusitis, coughs and colds.

6 months old? If the medication provided has issue, how are you going to explain it to the doctor at hospital? Given that they are western doctor, how do they know what type of medications were administered? There are a lot of implementation issues. Maybe can try tuina but try to beware of giving infant TCM.Read more
I'd go to yuguo if the cough and flu is really bad. other then that just the usual sterima nasal spray. if you have a humidifier that would be good.
I would say go for tui na first. Secondly, use a nasal spray to clear the mucus in baby nasal passage. Excess mucus will cause coughing
