Normally I go for the natural meds like Hyland's. This is great! I have 2 kids so of course when one Is sick so is the other! This doesn't make them groggy and it stops the cough and runny noses! Great go To brand!

I'm not the biggest fan in the world of alcohol based cold/flu medication. But if I really can't sleep because of an illness, this is my go-to product. The taste isn't completely unbearable but it's also not great. The fact that it works makes up for the bad taste though!

I have always been a fan of Vicks, but this product is so awesome. My children hated the original small, but they don't fight me with this one. I definitely recommend.

My daughter recently had a cold, and couldn't get through the night without coughing her lungs out. So, we used NyQuil Children's, and withing a half an hour she was feeling better, with minimal coughing. I recommend highly

My favorite medicine to take when I'm sick, and I'm an adult. It doesn't give me a heavy hangover like the adult brand does. It tastes amazing, nothing like the syrups did when I was little. And it works! what more can you ask for?

I never knew about this. Now I'm going to be on the hunt for it because when my son gets sick he becomes really restless at night due to the cough.This medicine works wonders when your child has a cold. Also helps them sleep through the night to get the rest they need to get better. My kids love the taste.

This stuff is such a life saver when I'm sick. It makes me pass out! I have such great sleep. Only downside is that I'm a little drowsy the next day.

What's the youngest your child can be for you to give them this? My daughter is 7 months and has a cold, I'm kinda iffy on giving this to her. Anyone tried it this early on?
