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

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.
