Hi my name is Tiffany and My daughter Erykah Hailee (Everybody calls her Lulu) will be 2 yrs old on Jan 30 2010. Does anybody have any ideas on how to get rid of a cough for kids this age the doctors say there is nothing they can give them but she has had this cough for about 3 weeks now and it kills me to hear her cough like she does. at night its worse Ive tried the cool mist humidifier vicks vapor rub steam from the shower.......

i know they say not to give them any kind of medication but i have a 2 yr old son and i hate to hear him cough bad also, so i give him just a little cough meds like if it says 2 teaspoons for 6 to 12 or whatever i give him like a half a teaspoon! i don't know how you feel about that but i do it and my son is perfectly ok . just an idea! the dr just don't like to give meds for that because if you don't give meds it is suppose to help build up thier amune system but i hate for my kids to be miserable it helps with the meds just i would only do it at night so they can get a good night sleep.

i agree honey is a quick fix. it really does help for a little bit and the kids love it since its like a treat, just make sure she's washing her teeth well so no cavities. Also, to tame her throat i like to use "Traditional Medicinals" tea in Throat Coat, caffine free herbal tea that soothes soreness and supports throat health.

HONEY. Get local if you want it to help with any allergies. You can give it to her as much as you want and it really helps. After 1 years of age they can have this.
