All-Natural Cold Remedies for Your Baby and Toddler

It's no surprise to anyone that cold and flu season is here. Having a toddler and a baby in daycare means double the germs. Add in that I'm a teacher and we've got triple the germs trying to invade our little family. I've never been one to take medicine (even when needed), so I'm always searching for all-natural remedies for my girls and myself. 
While I was pregnant, I came across Maty's All Natural Baby Vapor Rub when I was 38 weeks and suffering from an awful sinus infection. I remember slathering the rub on my chest, praying it would make me feel better and it did!
Once my first baby was born and was hit hard (and hospitalized) at eleven weeks old with RSV, I had to do some research to see what I could give to her at such a young age. There wasn't much out there that newborns can have, so the doctor suggested a vapor rub on her feet and her chest. Luckily, I had Maty's already in the medicine cabinet so I pulled it out and saw immediate results.  
Earlier this fall, my toddler came home from preschool with a horrible cough and as I was at Target, I came across Maty's All Natural Cough Syrup for Children. I quickly grabbed it off the shelf and read the back to see what the ingredients were.  Honey, apple cider vinegar, and lemon peel were three things that I could agree to putting inside of my two-year olds little body. Within an hour of taking the syrup (which she put up NO fight for), her cough lessened and I could tell she was much more comfortable. There is also a night-time formula of this cough syrup which I have ready to go for the next time she comes home from school with a cough.

Maty's All-Natural products are a holistic approach to help the body fight off colds and other illnesses.  With whole-food ingredients, you don't have to worry about harmful side effects or drug interactions -- for yourself or your baby.
