As much as possible we try to eat and use natural ingredients. Including when we need medicine. I have some bad reactions to cold medicines and so does my husband so over the years we have perfected different natural blends of ingredients that work really well, without the harsh medicines and chemicals.
When your toddler is sick there is little access to cold or cough medicine. They are too young for many children's medicines and those are usually only recommended if your child is really sick. However, what if your child has a small cold? You need something to help relieve your toddler's cough or congestion.
If your child is over one year of age and able to eat honey you can try this concoction. It is a great cold remedy that we use for Xavier along with congestion if he needs it and it is all natural. It lasts about 4 to 6 hours. It makes almost two Tablespoons and we give it all to Xavier right now who is thirty pounds in weight. So you may want to adjust it depending on the age and weight of your little one. However, it is all natural so it should not hurt them. You want to mix it so it is a lighter consistency than just the honey, but honey should be a tad bit heavier than the lemon juice as it helps the taste if you have a picky toddler.
All Natural Toddler Cough & Congestion Remedy
- 1/2 tsp. lemon juice
- 1/2 tsp. Honey
* 1/3 Cinnamon (only needed if there is congestion with cough)
Mix together and give amount to toddler. This makes Two Tablespoons for a 30 lb. child you can adjust accordingly, though it should not hurt your child unless they are allergic to any of the ingredients.
