Ever since August we’ve been fighting this cold season majorly. It seems like my kids can only catch a small break in between their colds because all the kids in their classrooms keep passing it back and forth to each other. We’ve been to the ER 6 times, 2 trips to the late night pediatric office and 5 trips to our regular pediatrician. It’s been a horrible cold season for us to say the least.
Before I was asked to do this post I had always used Little Remedies, so no, I’m not just saying I love the products because I am doing a post for them. We LOVE these products and they are the first thing I tell my husband to pick up from the drug store when we run out. Little Remedies use the fewest number of ingredients as possible in each of their products so they can be safe to give but they still make the medicine effective, because isn’t that the point? Little Remedies believes “less is more” and that’s why I stand behind them.
Kendall is currently sick and while I want her body to fight it off by itself I cannot stand to see her miserable. I think it’s true for everyone but a cough really gets worse at night. Definitely so when it comes to Kendall’s cough. And if we can eventually stop coughing enough to fall asleep it wasn’t more than a couple of house later that she would cough so bad in her sleep that it would wake her up. So now just before bed we started giving her Little Remedies Honey Cough Syrup to help sooth & coat her throat and thankfully we noticed her being able to sleep through the night. Little Remedies Honey Cough Syrup only has 3 ingredients – water, honey, and ε-polylysine (a natural preservative) so you want to make sure you use it as directed and keep it out of reach of your children.
Ben’s little body has had it much worse unfortunately. After many of those hospital and doctor visits being for him we finally discovered he has RSV. His pediatrician immediately started him on breathing treatments because the wheezing was so bad. He was born at 39 weeks and is completely healthy (in a sense of course) but that doesn’t mean he is any less prone to this illness. Little Remedies Saline Spray/Drops have been great for us because they are effective and they don’t cause him any side effects. We use the drops to moisten the inside of his nose before clearing him of all the boogies then proceed to do the breathing treatments. Having a clear passage way helps his other medicine get in him. Without Little Remedies Saline Spray/Drops we could irritate his tiny nose which is definitely not what we want.
Little Remedies Saline Spray/Drops and Little Remedies Honey Cough Syrup are just a couple of our favorite products.
