Quoting Clarissa Larson:" do you use them? did they work? any home remedies to try instead?"
Wouldnt that be a choking hazard?
I never heard of them....
I use a vaporizer/humidifier, keep them elevated, baby vicks on the feet, lots of fluids, steam shower. Keep the mucous out the nose
If it's real bad, I will pull out his nebulizer.
I found this on google though... sounds like it would be a nice alternative if you wanted to keep it natural.
A natural oil rub can also help sooth a cough. Mix 3 to 4 teaspoons of olive oil with 2 to 3 drops of eucalyptus, rosemary and peppermint oil. Rub the mixture on the baby's chest and back. This works especially well at night, because the rosemary can help the baby sleep while the eucalyptus eases the coughing.
