Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

yes it's okay to use
It is perfectly safe for you to use vicks rub while pregnant but if your not completely comfertable rubbing it all over your chest while your pregnant just rub some under your nose....that's what i do.
Rub Vick's under your feet, then wear a pair of socks. The eucalyptus will drain all that "bad" cold out of your system. Once I feel the sniffles coming on, the Vick's comes out!  Trust me, it works. I have been using it on my family forever and same with my Mom.
