  • NOOOOO medication at all to a child under 2 yrs. & even til age 6yrs, it's a big risk. try a humidifier for now & just suck out the boogers.

  • My 4.5 month old son just had a cold and they couldn't give him anything because it was bacterial. The doctor suggested we buy a humidifier for his room and suction his nose out well.

  • Little noses saline drops and sucking out the boogies. My 3 month old DD just got over a cold and these did wonders for her. She was so stuffed up she was even having a hard time breathing when she was eating.
