It's the cold and runny nose season, and with that comes a cough - always difficult to relieve, but there are a few things that you can do to help them feel better.
Lots of steam
Steam is a great way to help clear up airways so sit them in the bathroom and run the hot water. This will help clear mucus from their airways and help them breathe. Also a warm bath with a few drops of menthol in the water also helps really well.
Plenty of fluids
Make sure they are getting plenty of fluids to help flush out any toxins and prevent dehydration. So increase their water intake, give them ice lollies to suck on or even lots of smoothies. These are handy when your child has a heavy cough as they can lose their appetite.
