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   102.7 #3351 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  161.2 #2404 12-17-12 10:14PM
Yes this!! Especially the bottom of the feet. - Deltachiq  1222.6 #108 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  102.7 #3351 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  280.5 #927 12-17-12 10:21PM
They sure do Mrs :) - stevesdisneyprincess  102.7 #3351 12-17-12 10:24PM
Thanks I'll try anything right now! - disneyland4me  241.6 #1336 12-17-12 11:10PM
I always cover them with clean socks too :) Hope your little ones get better soon! - tiggertwin  330.2 #652 12-17-12 11:13PM
I think I'm addicted to Vicks :) great advice. It really works. Hope everyone gets better soon. - pinkmonkeys  515.9 #350 12-19-12 12:00AM
Peppermint tea with no caffeine. With honey and lemon. - MeridasHair   346.5 #599 12-17-12 10:01PM Like(1)  Reply
Thanks! - disneyland4me  241.6 #1336 12-17-12 10:07PM
This but I prefer chamomile caffeine free and lots of fresh squeezed lemon juice and sugar. - aidensmama  340.1 #613 12-17-12 10:21PM
I've heard a spoonful of honey in hot water helps. - mousejedi   306.4 #772 12-17-12 9:58PM Like  Reply
Thanks I'll try it ;) - disneyland4me  241.6 #1336 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 #963 12-17-12 10:31PM
run the hummidifier, do the honey thing, and a some childrens nyquil - GoofyMom77   480.9 #378 12-17-12 10:02PM Like  Reply
Thanks I need to get some children nyquil. - disneyland4me  241.6 #1336 12-17-12 10:06PM
yes humidifier, especially if heat is on. Really helps. Zicam etc. everyday! - ShariRenee  4200.9 #21 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 #613 12-17-12 10:23PM
they also have the vicks humidifier that works good too. - MrMOMzers   4451.1 #19 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   280.3 #929 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   4085.8 #23 12-17-12 10:14PM Like  Reply
Oh sorry- saw you said home remedies - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  4085.8 #23 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  811.9 #190 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   1584.9 #81 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  1584.9 #81 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  102.7 #3351 12-17-12 10:21PM
Funny how we are all suggesting this! LOL - mrscttlemstr  280.5 #927 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  1584.9 #81 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   280.5 #927 12-17-12 10:19PM Like  Reply
Sounds crazy but works wonders - stevesdisneyprincess  102.7 #3351 12-17-12 10:32PM
Really? Vicks on the feet? I've never heard of that. How does that help with a cough? - Waites4DodgerEars   970.1 #156 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  280.5 #927 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 #506 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 #780 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   535.0 #329 12-18-12 1:01AM Like  Reply
Stealing these tips! I'm unfortunately at the awful start of a bad cold ;( got the Vicks on my chest and feet, and tea a'brewin :) thank you for this post lol - AvidDisneyThrifter220   1303.3 #100 12-18-12 2:56AM Like  Reply

Vicks and a humidifier. Plus a big dose of love! - LaPearleNoir   1180.2 #115 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   752.0 #208 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   876.5 #172 12-18-12 9:11AM Like  Reply
