  • yes, caugh drops are fine. Try using Halls brand and limit them to as-needed only. Do not however use throat sprays. Feel better soon!

  • I was actually told the opposite by my doctor. Sprays were ok but drops were not. Is there a nurse line you can call to double check?

  • Or you could just gargle with salt water because that won't hurt your baby at all.
