As a parent, there’s nothing harder than seeing your baby get sick and suffer through it. For the most part, there’s not much you can do other than comfort them, give them a warm blankie, and turn on their favorite cartoons. Many cough and cold medicines aren’t made for children too. As soon as you notice your kids coughing, make this simple home remedy.
You will need:
2 ripe bananas, the riper the better.
2 cups of water
2 teaspoons of raw organic sugar.
Peel the banana and smash with a fork.
Add sugar and stir together well.
Boil the 2 cups of water and pour over the banana sugar mix.
Let stand for about a half hour, mix well, and serve.
You’ve essentially made a slightly sweetened banana baby food, but it’s excellent at relieving cough. Doctors think bananas can actually shorten the duration of a cough by days. With any luck, this remedy will have great results.
It seems unlikely, but the humble banana is actually a powerful tool in the fight against colds and flu. They are an excellent source of vitamin B6, which is necessary for your child’s immune system to fight off a cold.
