Avoid aromas: I am fine with a misting vaporizer for any kid with congestion.However, i consider Vicks as air pollution and likely to produce more airway irritation in infants.I seldom recommend this product, and limit it to kids over 6 years if i do. Your better therapy at 1 monts is bountiful use of nasal saline drops and nasal suction.
