    I believe it works the same way as on the chest, but that's too overpowering for a baby, so putting it on the feet makes it less strong. Maybe? :-?

    This is what I thought until I heard of adults putting it on their feet as well.

    I tried it once with DS1 and it didn't work. I haven't been desperate enough to try with this LO yet.  I have friends that swear it worked for their children.

    I've tried it on LO, I'm not sure if it made a huge difference but I know when I was a kid my mom used to put onions in my socks when I was sick and it seemed to work! Same idea?

    Is this what you're referring to? I wonder if the study included the Vicks for babies? I don't see any warnings on the baby Vicks packaging like the article says for the adult version.

    Your soles of your feet have some of the largest pores in your body. The theory is in that somewhere
