Too young?: It's usually not recommended to medicate babies this young. S/he doesnt have sinuses so, please do not try to treat for 'sinusitis'. Check with your pediatrician before giving any over-the-counter med to your baby. In the meantime, you can give very small sprays of saline into baby's nose and use bulb suction to remove mucus.
