What can I give her???



She just seems to have a tickly throat and keeps coughing so hard shes throwing up and not sleeping. She throws up really easy so I don't want to here about all the awful things it could be, lol.



Can I give her delsym? There's no dosage chart for a two year old :(.

Usually I do but it doesn't last long enough and I gave it to her earlier and she threw up right afterward so now she wont take more because she thinks its what made her puke.

What's it called, do you know? The only place open 24 hours is the grocery store so I.have to see if they carry it there.

Put some in some luke warm chamomile or green tea. The warm tea + the honey will help a lot.

That's a good idea to hide it...



Now to wait until she wakes op again. Uuuggghh why is it always the nights like this that my newborn sleeps so well? He's taunting me with what could have been an awesome night's sleep.

Its bad for infants, they can have it after a year.

Ya, I just went and read my container of honey and it said "do not give to kids under one year of age".

I asked a pharmacist at Wal-mart and he told me I could give Kynlee Mucinex for children. I told him her weight and he told me to give her 1 teaspoon every 4-6 hours as needed...



btw, she weighs about 30 lbs.
