My 22 month-old has a nasty cold and I was thinking of mixing 1/2 packet of Emergen-C for him. Does anyone know if this is safe?

It is safe but I would start with 1/4 of the packet. You'll know if it's too much if your dc gets loose bowels and then you just back up the dose.

They make a kiddie version of Airborne. I am not sure if they make a kiddo version of Emergen C, but I think it would be safe in 1/4 or 1/2 the adult dose
