A Warning about Vicks VapoRub | Parenting

I have to disagree with the vicks on baby feet then socks being bad. Actually, my pedi recommended it because DS had a super bad cold and could hardly breathe... However, I realize that everyone feels differently about it. I personally think that it really does help. I have been using it on DS since he was a wk old and he is now 10 wks. He has not had any reactions to it and it has helped clear him up and helps him rest better...

I've seen a couple of posts out there about putting Vicks on the babys feet and then putting socks on in order to alleviate congestion and cure coughs. Please know that this was an email hoax that circulated a few years ago with bogus research, and Vicks contains camphor which is not recommended by some for babies under 6 months. (although they have no firm findings on that either!)
