Even the homeopathic cough medicines are not recommended for children under 2. I use the Hyland's Cough and Cold and it says right on the label ages 2-11. I have not found ANY cold medicine that is safe to give children under 2. The best things for a cough/cold in an infant is saline spray for the nose and a snot sucker(sorry can't remember what they are really called), run a humidifier to moisten the air and elevate the head of the crib. That is what most pediatricians will tell you.

Any time you want to give an infant medication of any sort... talk to the doctor first like Evelyn mentioned. Does the medication you want to use even HAVE a dose listed for your baby's size? If not... it's not for babies at all.

Allyson, you do not give any baby any medicine unless you as a doctor including Tylnol and homeopathic remedies. Ask the doctor first always.

Do you mean the cough medicine ? If you do then no its not ok it's very dangerous. Just Tylenol when they are that young or a homeopathic cough syrup for babies
