My 13 month old has had various colds, allergies, etc since she was 6 weeks old. The Vicks Baby Rub is great. It really seems to help her. We also use CP-DEC-DM. It is a prescription cold medicine. The pediatrician prescribed it, and if we need a refill the pharmacy will call the doctor to verify it is okay to refill. I don't know what the actual name is because this is the generic.
