My 2nd dd (5yo) started with a cough/cold last friday, she was sick all weekend, stayed home mon and tues, went to the doctor monday. then my older dd (9yo) started on tues, now she is coughing and coughing and stayed home. and of course my youngest, ds 3yo, couldn't avoid it and he stayed home today just starting the cough and runny/stuffy nose. Granted not all 4 of those bottles of medicine were full to start with but still! It sucks too because medicine is SO expensive and we really can't afford to keep buying more but my kids are MISERABLE and the doctor just said it was a virus and to give them OTC stuff to help with the coughing and stuffiness so they could sleep... yeah that's not even working though cause we've not had a good night's sleep in this house since last week!
SO, any suggestions on what else we can do to kick out this awful cold/cough? besides going back to the doctor and asking for something stronger, which i'm tempted to do already...
