Brief Answer:
Avoid these drugs for simple cough and cold in infants

Detailed Answer:
Hi
I appreciate your concerns regarding these drugs for use in infants. We usually avoid them before 2 years of age (unless absolutely necessary).

For cough and cold you may give your little one Maxtra or T minic drops as they are better and safe in this age at recommended dosages. Give acetaminophen or Paracetamol if fever spikes are present.

Hopefully it will be of help. I would be happy to help you in any further questions.
Take care
