Jedilynn is the only child in our home who is over 6 years old, I'm a stickler of not giving medication to a child under the recommended age. Even when our pediatrician recommended us do so, I still chose not to. I rather pleased that there are very few cough medications for an almost 3 year old as Ezio needs to cough, coughing helps him cough up the phlegm from his lungs. He wheezes from the slightest cold so we love coughing from him. Weird hey? And Cade who is 4.5 years old just never really gets sick and if he does, it's just a runny nose.
When Jada gets sick she is usually okay for the first day and then it really takes a tole on her and she because pretty lethargic, even from a minor cough. She does have a narrowed airway and I've wondered if this is a partial cause. Like her body is trying to hard to breathe and cough. We do give Jedilynn cough & cold medications. She absolutely loves to go to school and will pretend she is feeling perfectly fine, we check for a fever and send her off to school... but then we usually get a phone call just before lunch that she's just not able to keep pushing through. So now, thankfully we have Children's Dimetapp Cold & Cough to help her through her school day as well as help "clear her head" so she can also complete her homework once she gets home from school. It seems to really help coat her throat and help her feel better and more able to do the things she needs to do. She always complains about the taste of all medications she takes, but she didn't seem to make too bad of a face or have a "pee shiver" when she took the Dimetapp.
We always push lots of water and juice when any of the kids are sick, rest is always something we also try to push, but Jada is just not one to lay around no matter what... she's been like this since she was born!
Please note: Children's Dimetapp Cold & Cough does NOT treat fevers.
Cold & Cough Tips!
1. Be sure to push fluids! Give your child plenty of water, juice and electrolytes to help keep them hydrated and thin out mucous. Try to limit their dairy (milk) consumption as milk increases mucous production and increased mucous means more coughing.
2. Steam helps break up mucous. Use a humidifier, give your child a warm bath and/or sit in the steamy bathroom with your child or baby to help break up their mucous.
3. When your child is laying down, be sure to raise their head up with an extra pillow or a rolled towel under their crib mattress. This will help ease coughs caused by post nasal drip and could even save them from a sore throat.
4. Have your child relax as much as possible, a child who is sick really can't sleep too much. To help keep your child relaxed, read books, watch movies, look through photo albums, etc. Rest is the body's best medicine.
