Scarlett has been sick for the last two months. Yes, I do mean the last two months. Going into child care for the first time in her life, I knew that she would surely get quite a few different bugs. But I had no idea how brutal it would be. One right after the other, the colds, bugs and sicknesses keep rolling on in. Scarlett has had bronchilitis, acute upper respiratory infections, croup, 3 double ear infections colds and so on….The doctors seem to treat with antibiotics but there isn't much preventative treatment that they offer besides that. Nor do they allow the little ones to take much besides Tylenol or Ibuprofen. This time around, Scarlett has the horrible coughing. It's so bad that she can barely sleep. I did a little research and thought I'd share some of my remedies with you all. Maybe it will help one of your sick babes in the future.
I found a great website with some awesome tips, here.
Amazingly, the Vicks on the bottom of the feet- it really works! I tried this with her and the coughing reduced significantly in a matter of an hour. I haven't tried the honey yet but it's on my list of things to try.
