Always Ask For The Doctor’s Advice ( Momimhar posted on March 21st, 2013 )

I am very glad and thankful that my little princess is feeling well now.  Her coughing have eased and runny nose anymore.  Though she sneezes once in a while but no more wetness from the nose.  The Little Noses nasal spray, humidifier, lots of liquid intake, fruits, soup, and honey help with getting rid of the sniffles and coughing.

My husband and I were very worried about our little girl’s coughing because it’s going on almost two weeks.  I talked to the nurse in the pediatrician’s office about the situation.  Her advice was to get a humidifier to moisten the air inside the house especially in the evening.  Then she asked me to stop giving the cough syrup I bought.  Instead, she a recommended the pure honey to be taken at bed time.  If the coughing still goes on in a few days and if she’s wheezing, then we’ll go see the doctor.  I found that cough syrup worked fine when my daughter the last time she had a cough.  But I followed the nurse’s recommendation.  And now, my darling daughter is feeling well.

We cannot help but worry whenever our kids are sick or if someone in the family is not feeling well.  We do our best to make them feel better.  And as parents, we feel stressed when our kids are sick.  The best thing we can do is stay calm, stick to simple home remedies, and talk to their doctor for advice.

  1. I hope your little girl gets better. I know it is hard when your child is sick. I had no idea you could use honey for a cough I have used it for a sore throat though.

    It’s heart wrenching

    Part of being a parent I guess

    i never give any medicine to my kid esp when i don’t ask doctor’s advice first. however i have to make sure that i won’t get my kids be used to on medicines as long as it is nothing serious. in order for their immune system fights those bacteria itself.

  5. Nothing can be more stressful than having a sick baby at home. Glad to know that the little Princess is feeling well now mare.

  6. I will be using the honey method. I am surprised my doctor has not recommended it as he prefers natural remedies if possible. Thank you for sharing.

  7. I hate when any of my kids get sick! It’s terrible to watch them. I’m glad your baby is now doing well. Coughing is not fun at all!
