Why I Don’t Use Cough Suppressants {+10 DIY Cough Syrup Recipes From Around the Web}

It’s very tough on us mommas to hear our children cough endlessly, so we find ourselves grabbing a bottle of cough suppressants to lessen the miserable sound.  However, cough suppressants may not be the best option.  They may lessen a cough, but they do not help the illness.  Let me explain why I stopped using […]
