Can anyone recommend a natural alternative to make a sick child more comfortable? I hate giving mine tylenol or ibuprofen but I also don't like them not feeling well. Just something that could naturally take the edge off. Any suggestions?
I have a one year old and I've found that Hyland's makes the best natural stuff for when she has a cold (it came recommended by her dr.) They make sinus tablets for a stuffy nose, sniffles and sneezes tabs that work for a cold. Eucalyptus oil on her pajama shoulders at night works like vick's vapo-rub to clear up sinuses. Also a humidifier helps for that. Sambucus (sp?) works well for a cough--it's red and sticky, but it works. I found all this stuff at Whole Foods...hope this helps!
