No one likes having a sick child but sometimes it’s inevitable. Ever find yourself asking what to do for your little ones symptoms? We, as moms, need to know how to best care for our sick little ones. Since we have been trying to live a more natural lifestyle (read more about that here), we’ve had some trial and error with products that we use when Braelynn is sick. I wanted to share some of the products we keep in our house at all times, just in case she gets sick.

I love this product from Earthley. Thanks to Braelynn’s seasonal allergies, she used to get monthly ear infections. This helped us clear up the ear infection naturally and helped her pain to go away. All you need to do is put a few drops in your child’s ears and let it sit for a minute. I know this isn’t always easy, especially with a rambunctious toddler, but it really does help.
Zarbee’s cough syrup
There’s not much worse than a sick child coughing up a lung. We love the daytime Zarbee’s cough syrup for when Braelynn is feeling a little stuffy and coughing. It helps her be able to breath and I feel comfortable giving it to her because of it’s cleaner ingredients.
Hylands night time cough syrup
The first time I used this stuff I was blown away! It helped her sleep so much better than she had been with the cold. She could breath and got a good night’s rest, which is needed to help her feel better. I will never not have this stuff on hand.
This is one of Young Living’s Kidscents oils. It is prediluted for children and helps with respiratory support. I diluted it more because Braelynn is so small but I love to rub it on her chest to help her breath better. I’ve even used it for myself some and it works great.
Elderberry is great for immune support thus great for using with a sick child. I haven’t found a specific brand in the stores that I like and has really clean ingredients but for now we’ve been using the Zarbee’s gummies for Braelynn. If you can get your child to take the syrup, that’s probably better for them but for now the best I can do is get her to take the gummies.
This post was short and to the point but I know how it feels to not be able to help your little one feel better. I hope these tips help you out and if you have any other ways to help littles when they are sick, please let me know and I’ll add them to the list.
