Does the cold & cough contain honey? I know their other cough medicines do...that may be why its not recommended for kids under the age of 2, I think that's considered the "safe" age to start letting LO's have honey. That said... I personally wouldn't have a problem giving maybe half a dose to my kiddo at that age, considering the weight...I'm not a ped or anything though.

We give her honey when she has a cough..so she has been exposed to it. Idk if it has honey..my friend is bringing it to me so I don't have it in hand yet.

We've been using the Similasan Kids Cold and Mucus and it actually works well. I got it at CVS. I think I saw yours and not sure why I did one over the other. I waited till after two and didn't give the full dose.

The Hyland's Cold 'n Cough does not contain honey. Their Cough Syrup with Natural Honey obviously does though :goodvibes:

Our pedi isn't holistic, but she uses Hylands with her kids and was more than happy to answer my questions about dosing when DD was younger. Give your regular pedi a call and see what they say.

This is the one I mentinoed in the other thread. The Hylands didn't work for us but this one did. We bought both at WalMart.
