  • I looked up the ingredients...and are you talking about just plain children's tylenol or are you talking about children's tylenol plus multi-symptom cold?

    Because if you take just plain tylenol, it won't do anything to cure your cold, it just might make you feel a little better. But you're not supposed to take ANYTHING with phenylephrine while you're pregnant, that's one of the active ingredients in the multi-symptom version.

    Have you tried Sudafed? It's safe for pregnant women and most doctors will recommend it if nothing else has worked. I've been stuck on it for months now because I've had a constant cold from being pregnant. It's annoying, but at least I'm not stuffy anymore.

    Just don't take anything with phenylephrine!
