  • What worked best for my son at that age was Baby Vick's Vaporub on his chest and the soles of his feet (put socks over it), then sleeping in a room with a warm mist vaporizer that had Kaz Inhalant added to it. The Kaz has essential oils that seemed to help break things up after a few nights.

  • We steam up the bathroom and sit in the home made sauna, warm milk too. Med. I tried to stay away from but if the Dr prescribed I used it.

  • Would also steam up the bathroom to loosen anything in the chest, if your baby is wheezing and having shallow breathing and has a fever...... please call your your babies Dr. right away.
