Baby & Child Cough includes ingredients such as Sundew and homeopathic Ipecacuanha root which are traditionally used in homeopathic medicine to provide temporary relief from dry and chesty coughs. Baby & Child Cough can be used in children from 2 years of age, and may be used in children under 2 years with advice from your healthcare professional. Healthy hints Encourage your child to drink plenty of water to keep their throat moist and to help thin down and loosen mucus, making it easier to cough up. A steam vaporiser can help to keep air warm and increase moisture in the air, which may help to relieve coughing, especially at night. Your child may like to sleep with an extra pillow to help relieve night-time coughing. Keep your child in a warm air environment as much as possible and avoid moving from warm or cold air environments too quickly. Keep your child away from smoky environments.
