Overall this is a fantastic product for your little ones! It really is soothing; helping dramatically with stuffiness and congestion. There isn't an overwhelming or overpowering smell like the adult version. It applies smoothly and does feel greasy. It doesn't absorb and just kind of sits on top of the skin. It isn't expensive at all, which is great for a product that works! I will continue to purchase and use this.

Works well and helps with coughs/colds fast just please make sure you do not put it on baby's under the age of 6 months it can cause them respiratory issues and can cause harm as they're body's are not ready for it if your child is sick and is younger then 6 months you can put it on a damp washcloth and place it next to them just make sure they can't get a hold of it!

When baby has a cold or a little bit of congestion, I like to apply a generous amount to his chest, neck and back. I also apply some to the bottom of his feet and put on a pair of thick socks. It helps ease the congestion and discomfort and allows baby to sleep much better. The smell isn't as strong as adult version and it spreads well, absorbing into skin.

I really like using Vick’s Baby Rub. It has literally saved a few nights sleep when my son had a cough. The smell helped clear his congestion and I also put a bit on his feet with socks and his cough went away after a few minutes. I will always recommend this product. It is a bit greasy and will get clothing greasy but a price to pay for it working great.

We used this with our baby’s and still with our toddler. I love that I can rub it on her feet and chest and helps sooth her cough. We use it every night when she has a cold and even put some in a wax melt in her room so she can breath it in while she sleeps.

I'm honestly not really sure what's the difference between this and the adult Vic's but I'm assuming it's ingredients are less harsh. Either way it really helps when my kids are all stuffed up. I used it on my son at three months old. With no negative side effects or skin irritation. It really helps with congestion, I always make sure to put some on their chest when they're sick and go to bed. I think it helps them get through the night!

Hands down the best purchase for anyone’s house hold. I have this for myself and my 6 year old. I put this on the bottoms of his feet when he has a cough or stuffy nose and place socks on then he goes bed and sleeps better throughout the night. This helps myself too. I place it on my chest when needed. I like to add it to water on the stove if i need some flowing through the house too. So good 😊 Vicks Baby Rub

This helped my little man so much. Between his cold and his allergies, this completely cleared his nose up in just a couple of days! It was so great to see my little man breathing normal again! Vicks® BabyRub™ Soothing Ointment

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