Homemade infant cough syrup

Little Miss just got over her first cold 😦
When talking to the nurse over the phone about it she gave us several helpful tips including homemade infant cough syrup:

2 Tbp Karo Syrup
1 tsp. lemon juice

Mix together with a fork. Give infant 1 tsp. cough syrup every 4 hours. Cough syrup can stay on the counter (doesn’t need to be refridgerated) but must make a new batch every 24 hours.

She also told us that at this stage and age her eyes ‘run’ (are seepy) because her nasal congestion can drain through her nose and her eyes. Interesting. And mildly disgusting…

p.s. Mylin is 9 months old today!!!! We are celebrating by ‘vacationing’ in North Carolina celebrating our friend Brandon Brown’s wedding – yay for a long weekend and fellowship with old friends! (pictures to come soon…)

  1. Happy 9 Month Birthday, Miss Mylin!! Rachel, Thanks for sharing your little tidbit. This will definitely be stored away for future use. Hope your vacation is terrific, and you have a great time celebrating with friends.
