Soothe your little one

5th April 2012 Print

On average pre-school and primary school children will have between 3-8 coughs or colds per year, so it is no surprise that coughs are one of the most common symptoms of childhood illness. Coughs and colds often come hand in hand, as coughs can develop from a cold when mucus trickles down the back of the throat causing irritation and coughing. Coughs can cause little one’s a great deal of discomfort and disturb their sleep, making parents want to kiss goodbye to those troubling coughs.

Honey is very well known not only for its great taste, but also for being a great natural remedy, which has been used for centuries so it’s no wonder that it was one of the first ingredients we put in Nelsons Sootha.

Nelsons Sootha, brings gentle relief to coughs. It contains 6c homeopathic potency of natural Bryonia, in a honey rich and zesty lemon base. Bryonia or more commonly known as Bryony, which is a yellow flowering climbing plant, which has been used in homeopathic tradition for the symptomatic relief of coughs.

Nelsons Sootha cough syrup is free of artificial colourings or flavourings and does not cause drowsiness. Suitable for children aged 12 month onwards. Homeopathy is a system of medicine which stimulates the body’s own natural healing processes.

It is important to identify what kind of cough your child has, and if your child has any of these you should consult your doctor:

Cough that is accompanied by any wheezing or breathing difficulties. 

A croup cough which has a barking sound. 

A whooping cough that has a very distinctive sound: a severe dry-sounding coughing spell that lasts 20-30 seconds and is followed by a whooping noise as your baby draws breath.

Nelsons Sootha is part of Nelsons’ baby range of products, which include Nelsons Teetha teething granules. Sootha costs £4.10 for 150ml and is available from selected Boots stores, and all good independent health food and pharmacy stores. Always read the label.
