  • Check with your doctor on this to make sure she is old enough, but I hear really good things about rubbing vapor rub on the bottom of their feet, and then putting socks on before they go to bed. The vapor rub goes into their body and travels upwards and clears out everything that is in there. It is supposed to be better then rubbing vapor rub on their chests.

  • The VapoRub is not to be used on children under 2 like it says on the label.

    You can use nasal saline for babies.
