@Sweet.Sugar.Rose:  lol oh.  I thought maybe she meant a pet.  HA.

 

Yeah…when kids get sick, take them to the doctor, right?

@peachacid:  haha Yea.

I think what she means is, her toddler only has a cold & there is a big thing going on now about how its a big no no to give a toddler OTC cold medicine. lol

Have you done a steam bath?  That helps my kids a lot with congestion.  We also do Vicks Baby Rub (specifically the baby kind, since kids can’t use menthol until 2+ years old) on their chests and  give DD extra citrus fruits to eat, to try and increase her Vitamin C intake (she loves clemetines!).  Unfortunately, with little ones, it’s a lot of just waiting it out.  🙁

You’re doing all the right things.  This time of year there are a lot of kids sick with colds and unless she has a fever or an ear infection, you really do have to just wait it out.

Pedialyte is good.  Does she likes smoothies?  What about drinkable yogert (like Danimals)?

I prefer the warm mist over the cool mist humidifiers.  The warm steam is more soothing than the cool.

@Missus_LLC:  DD loves the Pedialyte popsicles; she thinks they’re a special treat!  Also fruit pouches and smoothies are special treats in our house, but easy to suck down.  Cow’s milk might exacerbate her congestion, but you might try almond, soy, or rice milk, if she’ll take it.  Beef or chicken broth, too, if she’s willing to take it.  As long as she stays hydrated, you don’t have to worry too much about getting solid foods in her.  She’ll start eating normally again soon, and until then, her little body doesn’t need more calories than what she can get from liquids.

I hate cold season!  We just went through the first cold of the season a couple weeks ago, and it was miserable since both kids got it AND DS was teething!  Luckily it only lasted about a week, with only a few days that were really bad.
