All of my kids have been suffering from bad hacking coughs for a couple months, and even my baby who doesn't even eat a lot of dairy had it too. If you 've ever tried looking for cough medicine for 1 year olds, you know that it's hard to find cough medicines for kids under 4 or 6 year olds. So, what was I to do?
Finally, this past week I went to Target and found this Zarbee's cough syrup + mucus relief with a honey base so it's relatively natural, and it was safe for 1 year olds and up. Wow! I have to say that although it's a slow cure, it definitely has helped both my baby dry out her cough and lessen it a bit, as well as clear up some of me Mendel's mucus issues. I've also tasted it and it really does have a grape juice honey flavor so it's not too grose or anything. Both of them acutally like the taste. My 4 year old didn't want to take it, so oh well! The point is that I'm so happy to have found something to try and assist my younger ones in getting better.
Mendel is such a picky eater that I am not ready to completely cut out dairy which of course would help, but at least I can try and combat it with something. I noticed that they even have one available for babies under 1 year old, that isn't honey based.
