Recipe for All Natural Cough Syrup for Children

I thought I would share the homemade cough syrup that my daughters pediatrician told me about today during a sick visit for my Katie (16 mos):
What you will need:
  • 1 cup of honey
  • 3 tablespoons of lemon juice (fresh if possible)
  • 1/4 cup of warm water

How to Prepare:

  1. Pour the honey in a glass container
  2. Mix in the lemon juice Slowly
  3. Add in the warm water until the mixture is well mixed.

For use at bedtime:

  • 1 tsp for children 1 year to about 4 years of age
  • 2 tsp for children over 4 years

*****NOTE:  DO NOT use this with children who are under 1 year of age.

Place the remaining liquid covered in the refrigerator and discard when you would normally discard of the honey. If the mixture becomes a bit thick, warm slightly to decrease the viscosity.

I will be trying this tonight with Katie.  Sweet Dreams!
