Tuesday Tidbits

Cause who doesn't like tips, tricks, help hints, 'cheat sheets', pointers and even organizing pointers to make life that much easier?!

This year has been horrible for our family and illnesses! I will take any working 'thing' to make my kids feel better! Sick kids pull at my heart strings.

A few years back they pulled all the kids cough medicine off the shelves for kids under 6. These past few months my kids have had countless nights of coughing all night long. I don't know about you mamas, but I can't sleep though that. I feel SO bad for my kiddos and have tried Vicks vapor rub on their feet, humidifiers, sleeping upright...

Guess what?!
I finally found something that works!

A small cup of warm apple juice before your infant/child goes to bed will help, if not omit their coughing. If they start coughing in the middle of the night, wake them up and give them it and their cough will decrease if not be gone for the night.

We swear by warm apple juice for coughing and it makes our kids stop coughing every time.

Win win...Kids get their sleep and so do mom and dad!
