Kids have such a hard time sleeping when they have sore throats, are congested, and are coughing. We escaped this winter without too much nighttime trouble, but there were definitely a couple of nights where this Hyland’s Nighttime Cold ‘n Cough 4 Kids was a lifesaver!
I don’t like to take medicine myself, and I definitely don’t like to give it to my kids unless it’s absolutely necessary. But for nights when their noses are stuffy and they are coughing so much they can’t sleep, I don’t hesitate to give them this homeopathic medicine. According to Hyland’s, it is safe and effective for children ages 2 and up, 100% natural, and it offers multi-symptom relief. This nighttime version also offers ingredients to promote restful sleep, without morning grogginess or sedation like other medicines.
Last winter, my oldest was coughing so bad one night that I caved and gave her some ‘standard’ children’s cough medicine. It didn’t do a dang thing. The next night I gave her the Hyland’s, and she didn’t wake up once.
Since then, I make sure I have a bottle on hand at all times, especially through the winter! You can give them a dose every 4 hours, and there have been a couple times they’ve waken up after the 4 hours coughing. I give them another dose, and they fall right back asleep without coughing.
Adults can take this as well! One night I was super stuffy, and I don’t do well with many OTC medicines. I decided to give this a try in the adult dose (3 tsp instead of 1 tsp), and I literally felt my nose clear up! It was the weirdest thing! So I can personally attest that this has worked for us!
I used to only be able to find this at Whole Foods, but then I discovered some (but not all) CVS stores stock it as well! I love this stuff and have turned a few people on to it, all who have said it’s worked for them as well.
