Sick baby girl resting on mom

Nothing is worse than a sick child. Even if it’s just a common cold, it’s incredibly hard to see your little one coughing and wheezing, and exhausted but unable to sleep.  Something about my daughter being sick always sets me off into a tailspin of doubt and confusion.

Is it feed a cold, starve a fever, or the other way around? Should I undress her to help her cool off, or bundle her up to help her sweat through it and avoid getting chilled? Perhaps most pressing of all, do I give her medicine? And if so, what?

Hyland's Homeopathic Baby Tiny Cold Tablets
Because Hyland’s creates all of their natural remedies based around the principle of homeopathy, you don’t have to worry about unnatural ingredients with their Tiny Cold Tablets – available at the Earth911 store.

The fact that babies can’t speak only makes this decision tougher.  You don’t want your child to be suffering needlessly, but administering pain relievers at the drop of a hat can be worrisome.  Nervous parents everywhere may just have found a solution in the form of a natural, homeopathic remedy called Hyland’s Tiny Cold Tablets. These unique little tabs are easily given to children six months old and up, and simply dissolve in your child’s mouth – no more pajamas stained with red dye #40 from trying to stick a tiny medicine dropper into a wildly uncooperative little mouth.

The tablets help relieve all the symptoms of the common cold – coughing, sneezing, congestion and runny noses. Best of all, because Hyland’s creates all of their natural remedies based around the principle of homeopathy, you don’t have to worry about unnatural ingredients, and the single-serving style of the tablets greatly reduce the risk of accidental overdose.

Homeopathic medicine centers around the idea that “like cures like”, and has been in practice since 1796. Now, more than 200 years later, people are increasingly searching for more natural, gentle, and effective remedies, with fewer side effects than conventional medicine have to offer. What better way to start when beginning a natural approach to health and wellness?

Available in packages of 125 tablets for $14.95, these Tiny Cold Tablets may be just the thing for ailing children and worried parents alike.

(and P.S., It’s starve a cold, feed a fever. You’re welcome!)
