  • To be ABSOLUTELY safe for your baby, ASK your Medical Dr. You would never forgive yourself if you took something some Mom here said was OK only to harm or kill your baby.

  • Yeah definitely. Thanks. My OB says I can take Halls or Cepacol so I've been sucking on cepacol, 2 every 4 hours as prescribed. I just want the cough to go away sooner. It's mighty annoying.
