In brief: Not recommended

Medications such as decongestants (like pseudoephedrine) and antihistamines (like triprolidine) are not recommended for babies or young children.
They have not been found to be helpful for cold symptoms in young patients, and in some cases have resulted in dangerous side effects. Nasal saline spray, bulb suction, and humidifier use are more helpful and safer for babies with a cold.
