My son was at the doctor recently because he had this lingering cold that was not going away and he actually seemed to be getting worse. He also developed this horrible cough. It turned out that his cold had gone to his ears and sinus'. He had a double ear infection! The doctor gave him antibiotics for his ears but said that there isn't much she can do about the cough. She said that it is actually recommended that kids "cough it out." She said to try honey because most cough syrups are not safe for kids. Since my son is 9 I thought I'd check out the aisle to see what cough syrups they had anyways. I am so glad that I did. I ran across this Zarbee's Naturals Children's Cough Syrup+Mucas with Dark Honey. I know my son hates the taste of honey but when I saw that it was grape flavored, I knew I had to give it a try. Not only did he say it tastes pretty good, for the first time in two weeks, he was able to lay down for a period of time without having a coughing fit. I don't worry about giving it to him either because of all of the naturally derived ingredients in it. I highly recommend this product to any paren't looking to help their child feel better.
