    Parents really need to get back to some basics, instead of just filling their kids up with every new drug they are given. I feel that we need to use conventional medicine when it is really necessary and stick to natural, tried and true methods for the little things. If we don’t, we run the risk of over-loading our kids immune systems. Thanks for this post!

    Thanks for this. It really helps to give moms confidence to make things at home, the old-fashioned way. I used to buy cough syrup, until I went to the drug store and was told that cough medicine for babies was discontinued because of the harm it could cause. I was actually furious that companies have been recommending and selling it to babies for years – only to discover that it could harm them! Moms really need to follow their instincts, because what is recommended by drug companies today could be pulled from the shelves tomorrow. For now, unless my kids have a serious illness, I am sticking with the natural stuff my grandmother used. Thanks again!

    There are also lost of homeopathic cough medicines available at health food stores that are natural, if you don’t want to make your own. This is a good one though. I read somewhere that some doctors are saying now that over the counter (unnatural) stuff is not even effective.
