Man--aren't coughs the worst thing to deal with?!?
We had a whole winter full of them last year--and I finally realized why, we were stuck in the house a lot!
So far this year my two youngest ds have been hit by bad coughs and this is what I did...and it worked!...
1. I make sure they play outside everyday, no matter how cold it is, even if it's just for a few minutes a few times a day.
2. I found a Horehound herbal remedy that kept the cough at bay at night, when it tends to be at its worst, my mother used to give us horehound lolipops when we were little, but I can't find them any more--any one know where to get them? Mailorder?
3. I turned the heat down to 60 degrees F at night and loaded up on the covers...it kept the humidity at a more reasonable level.
4. If you can---nurse nurse nurse as much as possible. Fluids are essential.
Hope it helps.
