Finally! A Cold Medicine for Kids of Any Age

Girl Playing in Snow

Cold and Flu season can be especially hard for kids. Maybe even a little harder on the parents since the common cold tends to over run the entire house hold.  Last year my daughter caught one little bug and spent the next three weeks recovering from first the cold, then a stomach flu and finally a mystery fever.

I have to admit, as a mom – feeling helpless and not being able to offer her any relief was the worst part of the three weeks. Doctors hate to prescribe children under 6 anything for colds, and I don’t blame them. I just wish there were more relief options but I do what I can with what I have. Whenever my daughter is sick I arm myself with lotion tissues, chapstick, nasal spray, a vaporizer, and acetaminophen. I also keep plenty of antimicrobial sprays and cleaners handy.

little remediesLittle Remedies understands the difficulty moms with toddlers go through when our little one is sick. Admittedly, I’ve been using them since our first days in the hospital. My daughter was born with a deviated septum and it was important to keep her nasal passages moist. My pediatrician recommend Little Remedies nasal saline. Since then we’ve used pretty much their entire line of products but the nasal saline is always the one constant product in our house. I love that they offer a Honey Cough Syrup for the under six crowd, and their acetaminophen taste great – according to my preschooler.  The Acetaminophen is more than just a fever reduce, it also relieves the aches and pains associated with flu, teething and soar throat. I think one of the worst symptoms of a cold or flu are the body aches. When my daughter cries that her skin hurts the acetaminophen takes away the aches.

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Little Remedies. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

Little Remedies

As a mom, the Little Remedies believes in the adage “Less is More” resonate with me. Not only do they use as few ingredients as possible but they’re also free of alcohol, artificial dyes, and artificial colors. 

I can say with 100% honesty that I use the Little Remedies Acetaminophen whenever my daughter needs it. We always keep Little Noses Nasal Spray on hand and the Honey Cough Syrup around during cold and flu season because it’s safe for kids over one. But they also have an entire line of Cold and Flu products for kids old enough to take OTC medicines! Cold and Flu season is upon us, don’t be caught unaware!

    I really need this for my daughter. She just got over a col a few weeks ago. I fear it will be many more times this season.
