When my kids get sick, which I have to admit is not very often; I always make my grandmother’s chicken soup. I’m giving away family secrets here, but it’s the parsnip and dill that make it special, and I swear it will cure the common cold. Any sicker than that and I have to admit I’ve been confused about what is safe to give my kids to help them feel better. Meanwhile, Flu season is upon us again, and although I was sure to get flu shots for my kids to protect them as best I can, I know that one of them is bound to get sick this winter at some point anyways. I’ll tell you the source for my worry is the confusion over what to give my kids when they are sick.
Do you remember the report a few years ago of kids having bad reactions and then getting very sick from the reaction to a well-trusted big brand name kids medication ?! I remember the reports all said that is was because there were too many ingredients in the medication that treated multiple symptoms. There have been several other incidents since that one where big name brands that I generally trust have had reports of problems with medication for children as well. This has left me worried to give my kids anything at all to treat a fever, cough, sore throat or flu.
The reality is though, that when your kid is miserable and running a high fever you cannot just ignore it. Searching for solutions, I was really looking for something all natural, but had not found that any of the all-natural treatments that I tried actually worked to relieve symptoms. I figure that the fewer ingredients the better, and apparently I was not the only parent feeling this way. A dad who had the same concerns that I do came up Little Remedies. Little Remedies is made from the fewest ingredients possible that still provide safe effective relief from symptoms quickly. It was important to me that this product contains no added alcohol or unnecessary artificial flavors, and colors. Made for kids ages 0-11 years I can use it for my baby as well as my older kids with confidence.
Just this week, my little guy Zane had the worst cough I had heard in years! He was truly suffering and it was waking both of us up at night. Since I knew that Little Remedies works well (we have been a fan of the line for years), I gave him the Little Remedies Honey Cough Syrup and it helped soothed the cough day and night. With only three ingredients, honey, purified water, and E-polylysine (a natural preservative), I feel safe giving him this medicine knowing it is safe and will make him feel all better! Next up, I can’t wait to try the Little Remedies Gripe Water with Taylor to help her belly!
We try to enforce frequent hand washing, covering our mouths when we cough, and all of the ways we know to help prevent them from getting sick. The reality is that even just with the kids in school and trips to the grocery store it is impossible not to be exposed to germs. They don’t get sick often but inevitably someone in the family does every winter so it is nice to be prepared. I now keep my medicine chest stocked with Little Remedies products. Having safe remedies that work on hand to give my kids what they need provides relief for them but for me as well. From the pain relievers, flu medication, the gripe water for tummy pains, to the honey cough syrup, Little Remedies provides “everything they need, nothing they don’t.”
