Hopefully I haven't posted this before. I couldn't find a link so...
To stop coughing at night rub vick's vapor rub on your feet and the put socks on. Your cough goes away immediately and it also helps you sleep.
It doesn't work for everyone but for those it does it is a miracle. My son woke up at midnight with a cough and I did the trick. It worked immediately and lasted until the morning.
Just thought I would share. Now a days kids can't have anything for a cold so it's nice to find a cure that works and they can actually use.

Wow, I could have used this little tip last week, DD had a terrible cough that was keeping both of us up. Thanks for sharing!

no problem! I love this tip so much that I tell it to who ever will listen. Just to warn you it does not work on my mother. But my son had great results!

A tablespoon of Honey also does the trick. Works wonderfully for my DH, DS and myself plus it's yummy!

That's freaking crazy!!

I just had a cough for nearly 4 weeks that I finally got over last week. I was starting to get worried that I had tuberculosis or something! LOL

Wish I had known of that crazy trick when I was sick - I would have tried anything. icon_biggrin.gif
