I gave up. I tried essential oils, honey, humidifier, lots of water, lots of sleep, homemade vapo-rub, blah blah blah. After a week and a half of kid’s constant coughing, fevers, runny/stuffy nose, grumpiness, clinginess, I administered Mucinex Cough and Cold. And had the best night of sleep in a long time.
I will keep trying the natural remedies first, and I know that there was a lot more I could have done. I’m pretty new to this “natural” world and I’ll keep trying, but today I’m thankful for conventional medicine.
