Parents who have the products in their medicine cabinets should throw them away, NBC's chief medical editor Dr. Nancy Snyderman told MSNBC Thursday. The risk occurs when parents confuse the droppers included with infant medications with larger medicine cups that are used for doses for older children and adults, she explained.
"Usually what we recommend are saline nose drops, humidifiers and time," she told MSNBC Thursday. "Truly, these cold viruses, [and] flu will go away on their own. If you just give it some time, a little TLC and lots of saline nose drops, your child will do just fine."

TLC usually includes some chicken noodle soup. See Jennifer's post for a great recipe, as well as ideas for helping your little one without the OTC meds.
