A longtime virtual pal o’ mine, Leif, recently asked the following on Facebook. I figured it’d be helpful to others, out there. The answers he received, thus far.
Leif: Can you recommend any natural cough suppressants appropriate for a 3 year-old?
Tea, brandy, honey
Thanks, Mike. I’ve gotten recommendations ranging from a spoonful of honey to a shot of bourbon. I think we’ll start with the light stuff and save the big guns for the wee hours, should he need it.
My mother always gave me spoons of honey, even before the Mayo Clinic said it was a good idea.
warm some raw milk, if you can get it, with honey and cinnamon, until the honey is melted, and before the milk starts to steam.
