    Default Vicks Vapo steam safe for 7week old?

    I've been lent a vapouriser as DD has her first cold. It comes with a bottle of Vicks Vapo Steam which I'm not sure I can use on a 7week old baby. The bottle dosent have any age warnings and neither does the manufacturers website. I just thought eucalyptus wasn't safe for babies.

    Anyone know if its safe or what I should use if anything ?

    TIA

    Vapourisers still work well without adding anything else. I would just use it for the steam if you are unsure

    Yes, I totally agree with pp, steam is really good on its own.
