Many moms and dads claim that being a parent is the hardest job in the world, and when their baby has a cough or a cold, this fact is only further magnified. Watching a child suffer through the discomfort of an illness is the last thing a parent wants to do. But, the solution for a little one’s ailments can be complicated, as many parents are apprehensive about treating their offspring with unnecessarily strong medications, and with good reason. Before drastic measures are sought, it is good to know that there are an increasing amount of homeopathic and natural remedies available for the concerned parent, many of which have been tested and received with great success.
Hyland’s is one very well known brand in the natural products world that is expanding their line to incorporate the needs of our sick little ones. Hyland’s has been a long standing manufacturer of homeopathic remedies for ailments such as: insomnia, menstrual cramps, indigestion, flu and cough/colds. The company has long prided itself on offering products that work in synch with the body’s natural forces. Instead of introducing harsh and jarring chemicals and medications to an already compromised immune system, their homeopathic alternatives offer gentle relief for the individual who is feeling under the weather.
While Hyland’s has been making homeopathic products for over a century, the company has recently released their first ever homeopathic cough syrup for babies called Hyland’s Baby Cough Syrup. The natural ingredients work together to soothe a range of coughs and and their unfortunate symptoms. The syrup treats a tickling cough, a gagging cough, a dry cough, a hoarse cough and more.
The syrup does not contain any aspirin, acetaminophen, ibuprofen, naproxen, pseudoephedrine or dextromethorpahn and is safe for use in infants 6 months and older.
In addition to offering your sick baby Hyland’s Baby cough syrup, many parents have found that placing a humidifier on it’s lowest setting in the room where your baby sleeps can help relieve a dry, hoarse or tickling cough, as well.
Being a parent is undoubtedly hard, but rewarding work, and making the best choices for your baby is a lot easier when you utilize the homeopathic and natural remedies that are available, today. Your sweet little ones can get back to cooing and giggling quicker, and you can feel confident that you are nurturing their healthy growing bodies.
