  • My doctor said to give him baby tylenol. Take your baby to the doctor tho just to make sure.

  • yeah...you probably can't do much. i dont know how tylenol would help with a cough, but I would probably talk to my doctor to make sure.

  • Tylenol does not help with a cough and if over used can cause liver damage. You need to call your doctor, but for tonight, use a humidifier in the child's room and also vick's vapor makes a line for infants...not meds but products to help with chest congestion.

  • Our doc recommended jelly if they have tried some berries yet. It works like honey does for the older kids. Also a humidifier and vicks on the feet are good for the congestion.
