Life saver! Whenever my toddler or little one has chest congestion I use the Vick's. I'm not flattering them in it all day mainly the time that it's most helpful is bedtime. Rubbing little on their chest I'm behind their ears and you can tell it really helps open up their lungs. If it's a bad cold it's the only way I can get them to sleep. The baby version isn't nearly as strong as the normal, but it is just as effective. This is a must have in my medicine cabinet. Works great for allergies too. Sometimes I'll use it myself.

Review for: Babyrub Soothing Ointment 1.76 oz
My 6 months old was sick for the first time. He has running nose so bad so he couldn’t sleep peaceful at night. I bought this baby rub from CVS and it helps him sleeps better through out the night. I massage it on his chest, neck and back.

This is a handy product to keep in your medicine cabinet. The product
contains menthol, which will help decongest the chest and nasal
passages. I have used Vicks for years and my mom used it on me when I
was a child. This is the best quick relief ointment. This one is safe to use on babies. You can buy this
basically anywhere. I highly recommend Vicks!

This stuff is top-notch. I used it today in my two year old. It helped her cough and stuffy nose enough that she could actually fall asleep in her own bed for the first time in a week! It smells pleasant and I like that it's topical. My toddler likes to help put it on her chest. I wish I had discovered this sooner!

I got this when my daughter first got her cold. I love it and I would continue to buy! I think that it’s affordable and the smell is not too strong. We put on her chest and on the bottom of her feet. It helped her sleep!

This works great when my little one is sick. I apply it to his chest and neck and it really helps to clear him up. It was great to help him sleep when he could not breath at night from congestion. I always have some on hand for whenever he starts getting under the weather.

Have used these on my kids for any kind of cough. As soon as fall weather hits, I dig this out and immediately start using it on their best and feet to get them on the right track to feeling better. Always helps with the congestion and coughs.

I like this product because it is much more gentle for a baby and safer to use than the stronger version. I put it on my baby’s feet and I think it helps a little.

My daughter has always gotten snorty in the winter months and this helps so much. It's inexpensive and you can find it just about anywhere. Just a little smear on the chest opens up her nose and lets her sleep comfortably. Also, if you're looking for a home remedy, smear a little of these on the bottom of each foot and put white cotton socks on. Sleep with it on and take give the baby a bath first thing in the morning. It's stopped my daughter's sinus problems in their tracks, even without using it on her chest.

Did this help baby at all? Does it have a strong scent like the adult version ? Is it good to use on sensitive skin ?
