Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts ASAP
Were the cough drops sugar free?
Your baby should be fine. You may see some diarrhea or a little vomiting from the cough drops. The ingredients are not toxic, but can cause some gastrointestinal upset. Fot now I would burn some taost and feed it to him like a snack to help absorb some of the ingredients in the stomach. If they were sugar free then at that point I would suggest inducing vomiting. If your baby starts to have some problems you can give some Pepto Bismol at 1 teaspoon full per 5 pounds of body weight every 6 hours for two doses. I would also use a bland diet of plain skinless chicken breast boiled with white rice. This will help rest the stomach. Joan
