  • Honey. Studies show that cough medicines don't really work anyways.

  • Our pediatrician prescribed C-Phen. He said it was the only one he'd give to a child under 2. It works great for my kids, but you do have to have a prescription to get it.

  • NOTHING!!!!!!!!!! If she is having a lot of coughing, put Vick's Vaporub on her feet and socks on and let her sleep, it will help with the coughing. Cough medicines do NOT get rid of the issue. If she is coughing really bad, then call the doctor and ask them what is SAFE to give her.
