Oh my goodness! I am so excited to tell you about this amazing new medicine for kids...I know what you are thinking...really? You want me to get excited about medicine? Bear with me for a sec. Let's talk about how giving our kids medicine usually goes...
Scenario from my past: Kate has a cold, and maybe even a fever. It's not the flu, maybe just a virus. She is completely exhausted, whiny and just pitiful. I feel horrible...I just want to make it go away. So, I head to the pharmacy to pick her up something to at the very least, relieve her congestion and other symptoms. I get home, pour the liquid medicine in the little cup it comes with and she refuses to take it. I break into the whole, "You have to take it, it will make you feel better!" conversation, and she still refuses. She hates it, it tastes like medicine! Well, that's because it is medicine. I finally get her to take it and she gags it up. All. Over. The. Floor. And...we are back to square one!
Well, guess what? That is a problem of the past. Over and done. Because now this mom has a new best friend, Dr. Cocoa For Children Cough and Cold Medicine! This new cold medicine is a game changer! It seriously tastes just like chocolate syrup! I was so excited to learn about this amazing new product that I couldn't wait to share it with you! I mean, how nice would it be to be able to get our kiddos to take medicine without the fight?
I actually tried it for myself and was going to wait to give it to Kate when she got sick the next time. Then she came home from school after only two weeks and BAM...cold time! I had to talk her into trying it, and promised her that I had tried it myself. She tried the Dr. Cocoa Daytime Cough + Cold during the day which relieves stuffy noses, then when she went to bed, I gave her the Nighttime Cough + Cold. She slept through the night and woke up the next morning feeling well rested. She didn't hesitate when I offered her the medicine again, and that made this momma extremely happy! She even asked for it the next day, but since her symptoms were gone, I of course told her no...that is was actually medicine. When has that ever happened?
