Depends on what you want the meds for. Pain? Fever? I've used olive leaf and it seems to help with pain. Not sure I'd give it to an infant or toddler though.

For children: there is a product called TempAssure (herbs to support the body's natural temperature control system)...

(there's information on fever at the bottom of this web page)

I generally don't treat fever at all.

I used homeopathic teething remedies to treat teething pain, plus things like cold washcloths to chomp on.

I tried the Hyland's homeopathics for teething and it didn't do the job for our DS. As long as he didn't have a fever as well, I used a small dose of baby ibuprofen : when we needed to get sleep at night. During the day, he just nursed a lot more, so no pain meds were given.

Other pain: bruises and strains (unbroken skin) => arnica gel

Olive leaf is an herb usually either in capsule or liquid form...you can get it at a health food store or vitamin store or Whole Foods.
