A week after both my kids recovered from a nasty viral infection, I thought I would share my top 5 homeopathic or more natural remedies that I have found over the past few years worked great.
#2 - for multi-symptom relief (ages 2+), we have been using Hylands Cold N Cough 4 Kids with good success. It does a great job of relieving the coughing, sneezing, stuffiness even at night. I like it because it is sugar-free and contains no Aspirin, Acetaminophen, Ibuprofen, Naproxen, Pseudoephedrine or Dextromethorphan so there are no side effects. This is another item I try to have stocked up... With a kid in preschool, it seems the colds come often!
#3 - for teething babies, we would not live without Hyland's Teething Gel! Teething is no fun for baby (or parents!) but rubbing this gel on the gums really calms baby quickly. Both my kids loved the flavor so much that they would grab for the tube and want to hold it too! Since teething takes forever, make sure you have several tubes (one in each diaper bag/purse/stroller...) I buy these in bulk! Want to save an extra 15%? Buy these through Amazon's Subscribe and Save program and have it automatically delivered every 1,2,3, or 6 months!
