avoid Vicks its ban in all countries except india; it makes some kinda layer on lungs which is not gud. they re manufacturing Vicks in u. s n dumping it in india

No! You can put a dab of nilgiri i. e eucalyptus oil on ur baby's clothes or bedsheet whenever the baby sleeps.. it helps clear blocked nose and in case of cough.. you can slightly warm a soft cloth (with an iron or on a pan)n put it on your baby's chest and back for few seconds, repeat for few minutes. Remember to check how warm it is every time before putting!Tc
