  • You know, last night I gave my daughter some warm water with lemon in it and I gave her a teaspoon of honey. It really does help to coat the throat. Best of lucki

  • If you've introduced honey before you can try that - sometimes it works for me (although when I take it, I mix it with a shot of Jack lol)

  • yup what she said. also steam helps open the nasal passages so his cough's more productive.

  • A spoon of honey or a squirt of nasal spray is suppose to calm the tickle that causes some of the coughing.
