Took J to pediatrician on Friday since he now has the awful cough that I had for the previous week or two. I was surprised that the doc suggested benadryl. The rationale is that it can dry up mucous, etc. and that it's good, in general, for congestion. Cough meds, supposedly, are not given to kids younger than 3, according to some reading I've done (?). DS is 14.5 months.
Anyone out there use benadryl for this purpose? I've used it with him when he had an allergy flare, but hadn't for this.
We're doing lots of time in a steam-filled bathroom and are sleeping with a vaporizer.... but benadryl?? Anyone??
