How to Stop Cough in 5 Minutes for toddler or kids

Right now it is almost 11:30pm in the evening and my toddler (2-years old) just started to sleep soundly. She was coughing this morning, though it died down during the day and she even went to play school. The moment we started to put her to sleep she started coughing and coughing. Despite the medicine and even the chinese medicine (black sticky stuff made from hong Kong which is famous for curing sore throat) couldn't stop her dry cough! As a mother who saw her little one coughing so vigorously every 3-minutes , I got so disturbed and desperate!!!

I googled "how to stop dry cough kids" and I stumbled upon a blog by a Filipino who reported the article (which I pasted below).

To make the long story short ... After reading it, I tried it, and it worked!!! Now my little daughter is sound asleep without a peep of cough .... It has been 20 minutes since I applied Vicks on her feet and covered with socks. Not one cough so far!!!

Hope this works for other parents too especially in their times of desperation as they see their little ones coughing.

Good luck and hope it works out for you too. Signing off now as I can go to sleep peacefully knowing she won't be awakened by the persistent dry cough anymore.

How to stop cough in 5 minutes!!!

This is a must try…

We have all been kept awake by our own or someone else’s cough. Try this and pass it on. The tip and not the cough. ANYTHING is better than antibiotics. Even babies could benefit from this and the parents wouldn’t worr y about the safety of their child. And of course, it is harmless and free from any type of side-effects.

READ IT ALL. It works 100 percent of the time, although the scientists at the Canada Research
council (who discovered it) aren’t sure why.

Treatment : To stop nighttime coughing in a child (or an adult, as we found out personally), put Vick s Vapor Rub generously on the bottom of the feet at bedtime and then cover with socks. Even persistent, heavy, deep coughing will stop in about five minutes and stay stopped for many, many hours of relief. This works 100 percent of the time, and is more effective in children than even very strong prescription cough medicines. In addition it is extremely soothing and comforting and they will sleep soundly. I heard the head of the Canada Research Council describe these findings on the part of their scientists when they were investigating the effectiveness and usage of prescription cough medicines in children, as compared to alternative therapies like acupressure. I just happened to tune in to a.m. Radio and picked up this guy talking about why cough medicines in kids often do more harm than good due to the chemical makeup of these strong drugs, so I listened. It was a surprising ;finding and found to be more effective than prescribed medicines for children at bedtime,and in addition to have a soothing and calming effect on sick children who then went on to sleep soundly. My wife tried it on herself when she had a very deep constant and persistent cough a few weeks ago, and it worked 100 percent! She said it felt like a warm blanket had enveloped her. The coughing stopped in a few minutes, and believe me this was a deep (incredibly annoying!) every few seconds, uncontrollable cough and she slept cough-free for hours every night she used it. If you have children or grandchildren, pass it on. If you end up sick, try it yourself and you will be
absolutely amazed by the effect.

Found this from another blog. Tried. It worked. Must put her blog link to recognize her efforts (plus if you want to see all the other comments from people)...
