How do I prevent my infant from catching cold?

No prevention: Colds are spread person to person by mucous droplets. So the only way to prevent a cold is to not be around people who are sick , which is nearly impossible. But good hygiene can help.Don't go crazy with cleanliness. Its mostly about being exposed to others with a cold.
