Our family of 7 got hit with colds and coughs early this year, and the cough medicines helped during the day but not at night.  We couldn't use humidifiers in our old, stuffy house, so Vick's was our only hope.  It worked.  I don't know if it is scientifically proven, but we did the thick layer of Vicks on the feet covered with socks just before bedtime, and all 3 boys were able to sleep in their room.  It was a life-saver - everyone fought the cold much better with a good night's rest.  The smell reassured the boys, on a psychological level, that this was effective stuff.  Highly recommended.

I love using this product on my son! Specially when he’s going to bed and I notice he is having a difficult time breathing. This is definitely a fresh breath of air for him. It really calms him down. I like the smell that’s not overwhelming for him, that was my main concern for him having to smell something strong and have it bother him but it does not! It’s perfect. I run it on his chest, back of knees and bottoms of his feet. I have this product next to my bed at all times and highly recommend it for any momma trying to calm their little ones breathing at night.

I hate the smell of it, but my kids like it because they feel it tingling and working on them. I would perfer not to touch it lol but when i have no choice, ill rub some on their chest and back, and even some on the bottom of their feet with some socks after they had a wsrm bathm i do have a humidifier and ill scoop some and add a little bit of water to the little tray to melt and it helps the kids open up their sinuses so they aren't so stuffy the next day.

I would marry this stuff if I could.  I have a tub of this for my kids, and a tub of the adult version in my night stand allll year long.  I tend to save any sort of medicine for the last resort, but I don't ever hesitate using this on myself and my kids as much as they want it.  We seem to get congested easily around here this stuff is a life saver!!  One of my very favorite things in the world!

We love our baby vicks rub ! When our children are sick we want to make them as comfortable as possible and with small ones that is very hard sometimes! Vicks baby rub helps sooth your child and clears the airways ! We always rub some on us too! I recommend using on the bottoms of their feet and putting socks on them after a warm bath before bed time 💕 Using it on the chest works wonders also though 😃

I love Vick’s for so many reasons! It’s thick and goopy for sure, but the relief it brings is wonderful! I add some to the chest, neck, back and bottom of the feet (with socks) and if there’s more on my hands after I’ll dab a little on the tip of the nose to aid congestion. My kids will ask for it when they have a cold. The children’s one isn’t as potent as the normal one- which I don’t mind.

One of my must haves in my medicine cabinet. I use it on myself and my kids for not only cough, but also congested sinuses. I have found that when I run a tiny amount on either both sides of my upper nose or even under my nose it really clears up that stuffiness and helps me breathe at night. It has a nice warming effect when applied, but do keep far away from your eyes because it will burn.

This product has been in my family for as long as I can remember. I use it on myself to help me sleep at night, and now I used it on both my daughters. This product is. Must in my home, when flu season is near or for nights when my girls are fuzzy. I apply this on their back chest and the bottom of their feet and they sleep thru out the night. I definitely recommend this product
