Works for me Wednesday...(stop kids coughing at night)

Last night was a long night with one of my girls up coughing and complaining of a super sore throat. 
I am so thankful that a couple of years ago I learned of this remedy to stop your children (or your own) from coughing in the middle of the night...

Here's all you do:
  • Get Vics Vapor Rub ...( you know the one that our moms used to put under our nose to keep our noses from running)
  • Rub generously on the bottom of your childs feet...layered thick
  • Put socks over the top to keep it from getting everywhere...And like magic your child stops coughing!!!
This is something that you can even do while they are sleeping and they don't wake up!  I have used this for a couple years now and everyone I recommend it to, swears by it. 

Just thought this might be the right time of year to learn how to stop your children from coughing all night.

Go to Kristin's site to see what works for other people.



  1. I've heard that before but haven't tried it!

  2. Seriously? It sounds crazy. But when I've got a night cougher, I'll try anything. I wake up with every single cough, thinking surely she will wake herself up this time... I'll try it!

  3. I wonder why it works? I have an herbal/naturalist friend... I'll have to ask! Thanks for the tip!

  4. I've heard that as well. I'm going to try that on Baby Boo the next time she's coughing.

  5. I have 3 coughing now.... I am going to try that tonight...Thanks for the tip ;)
