    Default vicks vaporub?

    Does anyone know if this is ok to use while breastfeeding? I used a small amount last night but only on my neck...no where near my chest. Now I'm just being a worry wart. But this should be ok right? I thought I was getting a cold.

    I use Vicks all the time. I used it ON my baby when he got colds, starting around six months in very small amounts.

    Yes. If you're worried, then I'd just use the baby vapo rub. I use it on my LO. He laughs hysterically when I rub it on his chest. Its the cutest thing

    Hope you feel better!

    Really? I think Vick's Baby Rub is weak sauce. It does nothing for me.

    Thanks for your replies! I feel better now. Yes in the future, if I need to use it, I think I will get the baby one..I just had the regular one at home and didn't give it a second thought until this morning.
