  • You can use the Vicks baby vapor rub....I have used that one on my son many times! I think the adult one is to strong for their little noses though.

  • NO NO NO...I just watched the Dr. Show that comes on each morn at 9am...they had a long discussion about that stuff! It is BAD...I guess they have found through recent research that it is the cause of Asthma and other breathing problems! IT'S NO GOOD. a humidifier and the saline drops for the nose are best. If your child is having trouble breathing due to chest congestion, you should take him or her to the Doc for proper medication. It should be checked to make sure it isn't a chest infection. Go online and find natural remedies, MUCH safer!!
