In brief: Not recommended

There has been no proof that cough medicines are helpful in children, and most combo otc meds are for 4-6 and older year old children.
, if you supress a cough in a wheezing child you can make her worse by supressing the cough defense mechanism. Try humidifier, suction, with or without saline.
