With all the scuttlebutt about cold "medicine" not being safe for kids, I thought it might be helpful to start a thread where everyone can post their favorite home/natural remedies for colds/flu. I don't like giving my kids that OTC stuff anyway, and any other helpful hints might be good to have, especially with the cold season approaching!
One thing that really helps a cough (and maybe a cold too) is to put Vapor Rub on the bottom of their feet before they go to bed, and put their socks on. Works better than any cough suppressant! I also like to make my kids a hot lemon drink with water, lemon juice, and honey. They like it and it soothes their throat.
I'm sure Joan has plenty of ideas!! Anyone else?
