  • seriously, a little bit of dark chocolate will knock out a dry cough. You can give your little one a small bit-- like 1/2 oz to suck on like a cough drop. It works very very well.

  • I boil water and then pour it into a glass with a good amount of honey in it. Just water and honey. We call it "treat water." Something about honey helps relieve the real heavy cough. Good luck
