With this crazy fluctuating hot/cold weather and the return to school, is it any wonder that our kids keep coming home with coughs and congestion! Staying up half the night with a coughing child is no picnic. If you, like me, dread having to give your child a conventional medicine filled with artificial colors, sweeteners or unpronounceable ingredients in order to stop the coughing enough to get some rest, I have found some natural effective, tasty products you can find at stores like Walgreens or Harris Teeter. Zarbee’s and Similasan make great tasting children’s cough medicines with natural honeys, pronounceable ingredients and no fake stuff. Those that know me know I always taste EVERY medicine I give my children. These not only are effective natural products, but tasty too so there is no drama to get kids to take their medicine.
Coupled with fresh fruits and vegetables, no junk food, no junk drinks, plenty of hugs, kisses, water and rest, they will feel better and sleep better soon; this means you get to sleep too!
1. Free sample of Zarbee’s natural cough products. They send the sample for free but charge $1.99 for shipping. They include 3 $1 off coupons to offset the price of shipping so in the end you get a $1 coupon and a sample kit for free. See Walgreens deals below for more details on pricing. Find it in the children’s medicine section at Walgreens, Harris Teeter and some CVS, Wal-mart and Kroger stores.
