Although I'm not sure if kids can have them. I looked at walgreens and CVS today and can't find them.
Are you still producing milk, could you pump?
Chamomile tea, kiddos can have that. It's very calming and soothing and helps w/ sickies.
Add lemon juice & honey to the tea (or add it to orange juice - Simply Orange) w/ a nickel size slice of ginger root.
tea tree oil (you can find this at walmart, cvs, walgreen etc... it's w/ the vitamins)
thyme oil (or if you have the herb or buy it at the store you can cook w/ it or add it to her tea/orange juice)
Do you have a humidifier? I run one at night and it does help, especially if you can add peppermint or plain mint oil/extract, or some kind of menthol stuff. When Liana was little & had breathing trouble/major stuffiness I'd turn the bathroom into a sauna by closing the door & running the shower on hot to steam up the room. Yes, it wastes energy and water, but when you have a gasping little one... The Breatheright strips do help, if you don't have any you can try making one with a 1/4" or so thick by 1" long piece of tape, put one end just behind the nostril flare part on each side, you may need to play with it a little to get it - it should gently flare/open the nasal passages. Witch hazel wipes can help lower fever, you can soak a paper towel or thin cloth and wipe it over her body, esp. the forehead, back of neck, armpits, back, thighs - or at least those are Liana's hotspots. I hope something, anything helps & she's feeling better soon!!
Raising my kids with boundaries - NOT battle lines.
Children are not little adults, but they ARE people too!
There's a reason they are called dependents...
AP is not alternative to those who see no other choice
She is still snotty and coughing - she won't drink anything but water (cant mix anything in, she won't touch it) and im not producing any milk at all ....
