 Honey is not good for LOs under 1 year. I've never heard of that cough medicine before.

I would not give it to my infant and I also would be looking for a new pediatrician.

I wouldn't do it. You would think a pedi would know better.

I have given it to my 3yo but NEVER to a 1yo I agree find a new ped. Good Luck.  And at that age I just use natural Vicks type stuff and saline spray and bulb syringe to relief the cold

It is bad for babies under 1. I would just wait the cold out...especially if it is minor.

 Raw honey should be avoided by all children under the age of one. Honey that has been cooked shouldn't contain botulism--which is what babies tummies can't fight off.

I've never heard of that particular cough medicine.
