Good day, My 1 year old son has a wet cough, at the moment im using mucospect and prospan cough syrup. Is this fine, or do you have any recommendations?

Mucospect is a good idea. You do not want to suppress your baby's cough in any way as you want him to clear the mucous from his chest. So do not give him any cough mixture.
