My kids have had coughs all week, poor things. However, the one item that works best for them is Mucinex. It goes down easy, they actually enjoy the taste. It’s not so bad, as my husband and I always try out the kids medicines first. Always make sure to contact your pediatrician if you have any questions about any cough medicines on the market. Furthermore, carefully read over the dosage for your child, as they are not “one size fits all”.
