I wouldn't: The nasal & airway structure of young infants is quite different from older kids or adults. Studies have shown no benefit of cough/cold preparations to kids under 6. They also reflect a large number of ER visits and poison control calls from these meds. If you need something to do, keep track of fluid intake. That is more important overall & more likely to help baby. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
