Good evening everyone!I'm going to Disneyland on Thursday cannot wait but 2 kids are getting sick any home remedies for cough at night????
Rub some vicks on chest and bottom of feet. My mom would warm up in her hand and put on and always seemed to help me. - stevesdisneyprincess  93.7 #3393 12-17-12 10:09PM Like(2)  Reply
You took the words out of my mouth lol good advice don't forget the Vicks on the feet :) - annjay07  155.8 #2430 12-17-12 10:14PM
Yes this!! Especially the bottom of the feet. - Deltachiq  1170.6 #99 12-17-12 10:14PM
Glad to hear this doesn't sound weird lol. When I have told others this about warming up and put on bottom of feet I would get the "huh" look lol - stevesdisneyprincess  93.7 #3393 12-17-12 10:18PM
Oh wow! I didn't see your post 1st, but I also said to put it on the feet! Great minds can help one another :) - mrscttlemstr  262.2 #1072 12-17-12 10:21PM
They sure do Mrs :) - stevesdisneyprincess  93.7 #3393 12-17-12 10:24PM
Thanks I'll try anything right now! - disneyland4me  238.4 #1318 12-17-12 11:10PM
I always cover them with clean socks too :) Hope your little ones get better soon! - tiggertwin  329.4 #625 12-17-12 11:13PM
I think I'm addicted to Vicks :) great advice. It really works. Hope everyone gets better soon. - pinkmonkeys  512.9 #316 12-19-12 12:00AM
Peppermint tea with no caffeine. With honey and lemon. - MeridasHair  346.5 #566 12-17-12 10:01PM Like(1)  Reply
Thanks! - disneyland4me  238.4 #1318 12-17-12 10:07PM
This but I prefer chamomile caffeine free and lots of fresh squeezed lemon juice and sugar. - aidensmama  340.1 #580 12-17-12 10:21PM
I've heard a spoonful of honey in hot water helps. - mousejedi  306.4 #738 12-17-12 9:58PM Like  Reply
Thanks I'll try it ;) - disneyland4me  238.4 #1318 12-17-12 10:00PM
My parents used to give us warm honey with a squeeze of lemon..it seemed to so the trick along with Vicks on the chest, throat and back! Then cover up tightly in warm pjs and blankets! Best of luck! - Prettynpink1023  276.4 #924 12-17-12 10:31PM
run the hummidifier, do the honey thing, and a some childrens nyquil - GoofyMom77  456.5 #377 12-17-12 10:02PM Like  Reply
Thanks I need to get some children nyquil. - disneyland4me  238.4 #1318 12-17-12 10:06PM
yes humidifier, especially if heat is on. Really helps. Zicam etc. everyday! - ShariRenee  3414.9 #24 12-17-12 10:18PM
^yes a humidifier is great especially for the croup or any congestion from illness. I prefer the cold mist ones just to be on the safe side. - aidensmama  340.1 #580 12-17-12 10:23PM
they also have the vicks humidifier that works good too. - MrMOMzers  4434.4 #16 12-17-12 10:12PM Like  Reply
My little guy is just getting over being sick. Vicks, cool mist humidifier, and Hylands cough and cold. It's homeopathic and seemed to work great for Hunter. - MrsDisneyMommy29  279.9 #896 12-17-12 10:13PM Like  Reply
Coughs get worse as they lay down. Elevate their lil heads and a lil cough medicine. We are experiencing Night #2 with this - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  3132.0 #26 12-17-12 10:14PM Like  Reply
Oh sorry- saw you said home remedies - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  3132.0 #26 12-17-12 10:15PM
My little one is prone to coughing. Elevating his head at night has worked the best. My kids are older, but my Indonesian mother-in-law would put Vicks on their backs and then cut a fresh ginger root and rub it over their backs. It does loosen the congestion. I never knew about the feet. I will have to try that too! - RadiatorSprings4Ever  498.0 #332 12-17-12 11:48PM
Okay, this will sound weird, but it REALLY works. Cover the soles of their feet in Vicks vapor rub and then put a few layers of socks over them. - DisneyDavidEMT  1193.9 #95 12-17-12 10:18PM Like  Reply
Didn't see the other comments about the feet trick, so I will just say...they are all correct!! - DisneyDavidEMT  1193.9 #95 12-17-12 10:19PM
No great that you commented cuz cuz I totally forgot to add to put socks after to keep the warmth! - stevesdisneyprincess  93.7 #3393 12-17-12 10:21PM
Funny how we are all suggesting this! LOL - mrscttlemstr  262.2 #1072 12-17-12 10:23PM
And a couple of layers so the Vicks doesn't seep through and make a mess on the sheets - DisneyDavidEMT  1193.9 #95 12-17-12 10:23PM
A lot of people do not know this but if you rub Vick vapor rub on the bottom of their feet it helps with coughing. Put socks on after you put the rub on. I know it sounds crazy, but it helps! - mrscttlemstr  262.2 #1072 12-17-12 10:19PM Like  Reply
Sounds crazy but works wonders - stevesdisneyprincess  93.7 #3393 12-17-12 10:32PM
Really? Vicks on the feet? I've never heard of that. How does that help with a cough? - Waites4DodgerEars  948.0 #136 12-17-12 10:29PM Like  Reply
Your feet have soooo many pores in them, um well, I don't know but it works! - mrscttlemstr  262.2 #1072 12-18-12 12:48PM
Idk if kids can drink emergen-c but it works for me and I get sick a lot and very easily take it twice a day - princessVanessa  384.3 #479 12-17-12 10:33PM Like  Reply
Elevate their head by putting a pillow under the mattress or some rolled up towels - MaidMiriam  305.1 #748 12-17-12 11:58PM Like  Reply
I've had problems with asthma/bronchitis since I was a baby. The humidifier helps the coughing. Also, sometimes my mom used to boil water and pour it into a huge bowl. I would drape a towel over my head and around the bowl to trap the steam and breathe in deeply. I still do this when I get a chest cold--it's really soothing. - Spoonful_O_Sugar  492.2 #342 12-18-12 1:01AM Like  Reply

Vicks and a humidifier. Plus a big dose of love! - LaPearleNoir  1095.9 #113 12-18-12 6:25AM Like  Reply
Honey!! A little bit in some liquid 30 minutes before bed...I swear, it works like magic!! No more coughing at night! 😊 - MinnieMousewife  714.2 #194 12-18-12 8:52AM Like  Reply
This all sounds so cozy. I wish I was under blankets with warm feet and a warm tea with honey☕. I usually give my kids warm honey with a few drops of lemon it, I'll have to try the Vicks on the feet. - Philliprocks  609.4 #247 12-18-12 9:11AM Like  Reply
