  • YES! Think about when you have a cold, your body aches, your head hurts. I would and Do all with in reason of course.

  • It will help with a fever, although even a fever has it's place if it doesn't get too high. I don't think tylenol will help crankiness.

  • I think conventional drugs are sooo overused. In my opinion, i would not give the baby any kind of oral medication. Maybe a little vix or a humidifier to help the baby breath at night.
    But cold medicines do NOT help with recovery. They simply mask the symptoms and can even cause the cold to last longer which results in you taking medicine for a longer period of time.
