Q.

Scotts Emulsion

Hi

My baby is 8 months old and recovering from flu he is still coughing & has a runny nose so my sister who is a nurse recommended Scotts Emulsion for him.

What do you think?

I do not usually advise Scotts emulsion for young babies.It is a very popular tonic for children, but it is best to wait until your baby is at least a year old and then he only needs it every second day.
