Has anyone used Vicks Vaposteam in a vaporizer for their LO cough? If so, how did it do?

I have an 11 mo. old with her first cold. She has a rough cough and a runny nose. I bought the Vicks Vaposteam then noticed it said 2 yrs and up or ask a Dr. Has anyone had any problems? I knew I grew up with my mom rubbing Vicks on me etc (with camphor)....but I know it is better to be cautious.

  • Our doctor said it wouldn't hurt, but it wouldn't do much either.

  • My doctor said to use the new Vicks vapor thing that plugs into an outlet and looks just like an air freshner. it worked awesome.
