Thanks for asking on this platform

Sinarest contains paracetamol(125 mg/5ml),along with pseudo ephedrine and chlorpheniramine.
Here paracetamol is antipyratic/analgesic,pseudoephedrine is decongestant and chlorpheniramine is anti allergic.
The dose of sinarest for 1 year old baby is 5 ml and it can be given 3 times a day. Usually it needs to be given for 5-7 days depending on the condition.
If conditions worsens like breathing difficulty, persistent fever or decreased feeding please consult your pediatrician.
