  • There are "natural" brands out there, that dont use a condensed version of cough medicine. All I know is that when I tried one it was really gross LOL. I'd say your best bet is to ask your doctor just in case. I know some sites say to use lozenges rather than cough drops, but again I'd say it's best just to ask your doctor. If you need something tonight, try giving your L&D a call & ask one of the nurses what they recommend. Good luck!

  • I use cough drops there is not enough cough syrup in them to harm your baby unless you use them like candy...

  • my doctor told me to use regular halls. i have one in my mouth right now lol....he just told me this on monday, but every doctor has their own opinions based on your individual needs so i would check with your OB first and just see what they say. you should be able to just call and ask.
