Need more info: It is not feasible to provide an opinion without knowing the contents of the syrup. You may be reacting to dextromethorphan, a usual content of cough syrups. Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex.

Is it safe to give my baby cold or cough medicine?

No: Plain Acetaminophen (tylenol) can be used for pain or fever (call your doctor first if your baby is less than 3 months). If your child is older than 6 months you can also use Ibuprofen (advil/motrin). But over-the-counter cough and cold medications are dangerous in children less than 6 years old.

Breast milk: Secretions are the main way that bacteria and viruses can be passed from mother to newborn. Secretions from your nose, mouth, and even breastmilk. Breast milk, however, carries lots of antibodies that protects the baby.
