Seems to only last for a short period of time. However, very effective at first and can be a good push to fall asleep or to get out of bed in the morning. Once you get going, it sometimes takes the edge off a bit and is great for kids with chronic coughs.

Tastes like crap but it definitely does the job. I hate when my kids are sick, especially when they're sick AND they can't sleep because they've been coughing all night. This stuff is a lifesaver for me and for them.

This is a really good medicine for toddlers it works quick and tastes good it’s a little pricey but that’s fine as long as it works I would recommend to other moms to help with their child’s future colds

Amazing product. It helps my kid sleep with no problem. It’s also so easy to find and so affordable. The cherry flavor makes it so easy for my toddler to drink it

This product works amazing! I have 5 children so when 1 is sick they all get sick. It usually only takes 1-2 doses of this product and they are all feeling better.

I feel like this worked wonders for my daughter, when I could get her to actually take it. She hated the taste and every time I would give her the cup to drink it, she would cringe and make yucky faces. She usually takes a sip or two and won’t take anymore..

Whenever my son is sick he likes to drink this NyQuil since it comes in different flavors. Not like other medicines that has a sour taste. Very affordable and long lasting. Plus is very effective.

This is a must have for the winter season. Helps the kiddos feel better and you gotta love that it helps them sleep as well. We all know sleeping with a cold is miserable.

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?
