Tonight, I’m Irma. I want to ask if I can cough concoction for babies 7 months mixed with formula milk? Because my child is having trouble taking medicine, it always comes out again. Thank you for the answer

Hello Dania,

Thank you for the question.

Need to be clarified, what is the exact medicine that the doctor concocted for your baby? Besides coughing, are there other complaints that your baby has?

Coughing in infants can be many possible triggers, including allergies, foreign body entry, irritation, viral or bacterial infections, asthma, bronchitis, and many others. Different causes of coughing, of course, will also require different treatments.

Some drugs are influenced by their absorption and metabolism in the body by consuming milk, and some are not. Without knowing exactly what drug is meant, of course we are not authorized to determine whether it is safe or not to mix the drug with milk as you asked.

If your baby is having difficulty taking medicine, try the following tips:

 Dilute the concoction with a little water Minimize the diluted concoction using a little pipette Position the baby to be comfortable Avoid forcing or holding the baby too strong when taking the medicine so that he does not wriggle Avoid also closing the baby's nose when taking the medicine, so he not choke If the steps above are still difficult, you should check your baby to the doctor or pediatrician to be given the best alternative solution, ok?

I hope this helps.
