    Thank you for your article about cough and cold medicines in children, as a dad and a doctor, I find children’s cough and cold medications a very scary topic.

    There is a new product that has been shown to be safe and effective for children 1 and older. It is called Honey Don’t Cough, you should check it out and let parents know about it.

    Thanks for sharing. It think the cough and cold medicine section is very important at this time of year. I heard that honey is really good for a cough (once your child is over 1).

    @Lisa: Yes, and thanks for mentioning the 1 yr age limit. Talk to your pediatrician, since most recommend waiting until 2 years of age due to the risk of infant/toddle botulism from honey.
