Package Information


Soothe a fussybaby

If your baby is restless and miserable, try rubbing a dab of Vicks Baby Balsam on your own chest. Then, as you hold your child close against your bare arm, your body warmth will release the soothing aromas, helping your baby to relax and relieving their discomfort.

Where to put Vicks on a baby? The "Love Heart" massage: Try a 'love heart' massage on your baby's chest. Warm your hands and rub a small dab of Vicks Baby Balsam on your fingertips, then place both hands on your baby's chest. With fingers flat, stroke up the sternum, around the top of the chest, out to the shoulders, down to the base of the ribs and back to the bottom of your baby's sternum, making a heart shape (repeat this several times as long as your baby is enjoying it).

The soothing aromas of lavender, rosemary and eucalyptus in Vicks Baby Balsam help your baby rest and relax more easily, so she can sleep better at night and be happy and relaxed during the day.

Love It

We’ve been using this on my son since he was 9 months old. He will be 3 in four months and he asks for it on his chest and feet when he’s got a cough and/or congestion. It’s soothing to him and always helps him through whatever sickness he’s feeling! I’ve recommended this to MANY and will continue to do so.

Yes, I recommend this product

Love it!

I love the smell and it’s effectiveness. I put the rub on my 5 month old early morning and by 5pm that evening, he sounded and acted like he was feeling much better! I would definitely recommend this product to a friend or family member!
