Best cold an cough medicine for 3 year old? Any suggestions that work for your kids?

I’ve tried the Zarbees Honey cough medicine? It’s thick and my son hates it. Right now I’m using the Hylands cold and cough and it doesn’t seem to be doing a whole lot.

    Have you tried putting Vick’s on his feet and socks?! That helps suppress the cough!!!

    The only thing I’d recommend with the Vick’s is use Baby Vick’s. It’s a little less intense with the menthol smell, and won’t burn as much as normal adult Vick’s! I’ve experimented with it, on my skin compared to my Vick’s and it is a lot less intense for their sensitive skin!!!

    Definitely the Vick’s. I also just got a liquid Vick’s that you use with your humidifier and it’s amazing
