Over the counter medications are helpful and can be very effective for children with cough and congestion. However, there are many that are not suitable for children because of their young age. Because of this, parents tend to search for a safer alternative.

Steam is a great way to help fight congestion. This can be administered to a child by having them sit in a steamy bathroom for several minutes. You can also allow them to breathe in the steam created from a boiling pot of water or use a humidifier.

To help fight cough, honey is one of the best options to use. This will help to coat the child’s cough and can make a cough less likely to occur. It is also something that can be mixed with drinks or given plain depending on the preference of the child. However, make sure that your child is over the age of two before you give them honey. It is possible that honey can make them very ill when they are this young.
