  • Put it on her feet before bed, and add socks or footie pajamas. It works for some reason.

  • I don't use, because I heard somewhere(maybe the pharmacists) that it can interfere with their airways, irritate it. But I know lots of other people who use.

    I would recommend asking your doc or your pharmacist.

  • It can affect their airways if you put it under their nose.. which i used to always do as a kid. Just rub it on their chest or back.. and yes i've heard the feet also. They made one for babies that has the menthol and lavender and i love it!
