Home Remedies and Medicine To Help Your Child Fight a Cold

Hey everyone so cold season is coming up so I thought I would share some home remedies and some products that will help your child when they get a cold. Here are the products that I have for Chloe just in case she gets a cold. It's good to be prepared early because you never know when your child will get sick or get a cold. Also it's important to disinfect toys, door knobs, surfaces, etc.

Home Remedies:

1. A lot of Rest- I think everyone knows that this is important because when your child is resting they are more able to fight off the infection or cold.

2. Humidifier- Breathing in the air will help with the child's nasal passage.

3. Extra fluids- Drinking lots of fluids will help not only keep your child hydrated but also flush out the bacteria and infection.

4. Chicken soup or other warm healthy soup- Warm liquids can help soothe the throat and can help relieve congestion. Studies shows that chicken soup can relieve cold symptoms....

5. Elevating the head- Elevating the head can help them breathe more comfortably.

6. Honey- Using honey helps soothe the throat and helps with a cough. You can give them 1/2-1 teaspoon of honey.

Products that you can get Over The Counter at a Grocery Store or Pharmacy:

This is the Johnson's Baby Bath Soothing Vapor. It comforts babies who have a cold. I used it a couple of times with Chloe when she was congested and it helped.

Boogie Wipes have natural gentle saline which helps open and relieve nasal congestion. I use these all the time with Chloe and they smell amazing.

Children's Motrin help with reducing fever. This has helped Chloe so much when she got a 105 fever.

Here is some cold medicine that I have bought for Chloe. There is the Children's Dimetapp which is for Cold and Cough... It helps with stuffy and runny nose, sneezing, watery eyes and cough. Next is the Little Remedies for Colds Honey Elixir which soothes cough naturally and it is dye and gluten free. Last is the Zarbee's Naturals Baby Cough Syrup.

Last I wanted to share two products with you that helps with nasal congestion. There is the Little Remedies Saline Spray Drops. The other is the Simply Saline Plus Baby Nasal Moisturizer Gel which you just rub around the outside of the nose to help reduce dryness and redness.
