My husband family grew up using cola syrup but not for cough supression. My MIL gave it to her 6 babies for stomach upset-to calm a fussy stomach, nausea, indigestion, sour stomach etc. If the baby is taking solid foods I wouldnt think it would hurt to try a bit. It does contain a concentrated amount of caffiene though since it is not diluted with soda water. That would be my only misgiving. Ask your pediatrician to be sure.
