18 month old with cough

My dd developed a cough. It's a mucousy sounding cough and she has a slight runny nose (clear mucous). No fever. Is there anything I can do for her cough to make her more comfortable?

Re: 18 month old with cough

I give my kids warm water with honey and lemon in it. Most of the time it soothes coughs, but even if it doesn't it's a nice treat when they're feeling icky. I use about 4 oz of water, 1 Tbsp honey and a little squeeze of lemon.

I keep a jar full of sliced lemons, ginger and honey in the fridge. Take it by the spoonful or add it to hot water for tea. I also give elderberry syrup which works best (and since I make my own with agave, the baby can have it too)

Do you just slice up ginger root?
