Does that seem crazy to you? My pedi told me to give it to my 7 month old daughter for her cough. I don't remember how much because I was honestly set back that he recommended Dimetapp. What do you think?

I think no.. you're not supposed to give children anything other than tylenol or motrin until age 6 (so I've read.. it probably will not help)...

What?! My Pedi. told me you shouldn't give baby's any cough medicine til they are at least 2 or older.....the cough medicine causes more mucous to come up and it could choke the baby because they don't realize they need to cough it up.....
