Cough syrup, Nosal drop and steam are not affecting much for my 1 month infant, can I give him nebulizer with saline water.

Cough syrup, Nosal drop and steam are not affecting much for my 1 month infant, can I give him nebulizer with saline water.

? irritants?: The first months are troubled by narrow nasal passages exposure to dust, fragrances, smoke & other irritants. This often ends as congestion & produces rattling with breathing. The best rx is washing out the nose with saline & SUCTIONING the remainder. Eliminate irritants from babies environment & this will happen less. Cough syrups make them worse. Nasal drops without suction are a waste of time. ...Read more

I have a 9 month old baby girl. I accidentally bought children's acetametiphen instead of infant's. Do I need to go exchange it or is there a dosage appropriate for infants?

I have a 9 month old baby girl. I accidentally bought children's acetametiphen instead of infant's. Do I need to go exchange it or is there a dosage appropriate for infants?

Fine to use: As long as the proper dosage per weight is given, it doesn't matter what preparation you use. The infant drop preparation is more concentrated & helps moms who struggle with kids to get the medicine down. Verify the concentration of the product you bought. Most have 160mg/5ml. The average 9m girl @ ~19lb would get 1/2 tsp every 6-8h. ...Read more

Is there a practical limit for how long (days) acitaminophen can be given to infants if approperiate dose is being given at right intervals?

Less is better: While acetaminophen is considered safe if dosed appropriately & at proper intervals for short periods, there's no recommendation for max safe duration. However, studies (in adults) have shown adverse affects on kidneys, GI, and other systems with long-term use. If you think a child needs it for more than a few days in a row, then they need to see a pediatrician to address WHY they need it. ...Read more

Is colicaid safe to give along with omnacortil Forte? My child is on Omnacortil Forte syrup but he is having colic issue, can I give colicaid to him?

Colic: Colic occurs in infants up to about 4 months of age. The ingredients in Colicaid will not hurt your baby but have not been shown to help much either. If your baby is taking a steroid such as Omnacortil Forte (prednisolone), that illness takes precedence and I would avoid giving baby other treatments unless prescribed. Unsure if safe. ...Read more
