  • Try some Gypsy Cold Tea with some honey in it. Honey will help soothe your throat. The tea will help with the post-nasal drip, which is what's likely irritating your throat, making you cough. There's a night time version, too, that really knocks me out. You can also try Robitussin, I believe, but be aware anything that works as a decongestant, including Vick's, may dry up your supply some, so just be prepared for that. I never had huge issues with it, but it's a known side effect. Hang in there, mama! I hope you feel better soon! =)
