If you started down the road of parenting when products like “Infant’s Triaminic” cold medicine’s were still available, it probably came as a shock when they were suddenly pulled from the shelves and there were no more cold-related medicines available for children under the age of 4 years.
Nevertheless, children under the age of 4 years, mine included, continue to get colds.
At home as well as during travel, I stay prepared with plenty of Vick’s Baby Rub and another Pack This! recommendation you’ll certainly want to have in your suitcase this winter: The mini waterless vaporizer.
I was also happy to discover this homeopathic Nighttime Cold ‘N Cough syrup that is safe for children 2 years and older, and eases coughing, runny nose, chest congestion, sore throat, sneezing and… sleeplessness (which we know affects Mom and Dad as much as the tot when all the other symptoms are present!).
Tip: If you find yourself on the road with sick kids, don’t forget the “Health and Medical Help” section in Take-Along Travels with Baby with on-the-go tips and advice including the Traveler’s Guide to Ear Infections.
Have you tried this remedy for your child? Do you have another helpful tip for easing colds during travel with a baby or toddler?
