just wondering, with your kids, have you ever had a bad experience with them swallowing the garlic with honey? i have been afraid to try it on mine, because someone else here said it was a very unpleasant experience. is it no big deal? or do they have anything else "happen" after taking it? thanks for your experience! Other than spitting it back out on his shirt and making horrible faces, nothing bad to report. My daughter doesn't really enjoy it either but she asks for it when her nose gets stopped up, but she has to flap her hands in the air and drink water real fast after. My little drama queen.
I could totally picture this. Too funny!
Well, my one word to describe whooping cough would be "trial". Okay maybe two, "exhausting". With our 3 kiddos, we were up many many times a night, comforting, giving shower steam treatments (till the water ran cold), and changing bedding and clothing from the kids coughing so hard they threw up.
I unknowingly managed to spread it to the east and west coast, specifically Mississippi, California, Texas, and Oregon. Sorry! We flew to MS to visit my mom and CA to visit DH's mom. Texas was the layover
I thought the kids had bronchitis, then croup, and finally figured out it was pertussis. We lived through it but with my 9 month old it was so scary. Turning blue many, many times a day and coughing so hard he would vomit and poop at the same time. Only, later did I find out the scary things, albeit rarely, that can happen to little babies who have pertussis. I'm almost glad I didn't know at the time, but I did know instinctively, that this was serious. We saw two doctors $$$ one in MS and one in Ca who just passed it off as bronchitis. Turning blue? Vomitting? Pooping? It's been an education that's for sure!
