There are lots of choices out there for medicine on the market for kids, but knowing which one will do the job and be safe for growing bodies is not always clear. Hyland’s steps it up with their natural relief options for babies and kids, providing homeopathic options for parents.
Hyland’s Baby Nighttime Mucus + Cold Relief and Daytime Mucus + Cold Relief are designed for ages 6 months and up. There are no artificial parabens, dyes, or flavors so it is safe and gentle on tiny tummies. Both the Daytime and Nighttime formulations are made with only natural active ingredients that are HPUS (in the official Homeopathic Pharmacopeia of the United States), so there is no stimulant side effects. The Mucus + Cold Relief for Daytime and Nighttime both loosen mucus and provide relief from congestion, cough, and runny noses. The Nighttime medication also helps with the occasional sleeplessness that comes when baby is not feeling well, and side effect is mom/dad get sleep too! The Daytime Relief contains no alcohol, and the Nighttime Relief has less than .2% alcohol.
For kids ages 2-12, Hyland’s 4Kids Cold ‘n Cough does the trick. Both the Daytime and Nighttime formulations are sugar free, dye free, and alcohol free. The natural grape flavor helps make it easy to get kids to take it as it does not have the yucky after taste some medications have. The 4 Kids Cold ‘n Cough addresses children’s congestion, cough, runny nose, sneezing, and sore throat with the added bonus of also relieving post nasal drip. As with the Hyland’s Baby line, the 4Kids line also is free of stimulant side effects and are made with natural active ingredients that are HPUS. They do not need to be refrigerated, and only stored at room temperature. Each bottle comes with an easy to measure and use either medicine cup (4Kids) or syringe (Baby).
