Hyland's Homeopathy has been around since 1903 with the sole purpose of creating strong, effective medicine that is natural too. Always one to purchase over the counter medicine with names familiar to me (hard habits are hard to break), I recently became interested in finding something more natural for my little one that still worked well. I'm so glad that I did because Hyland's works really well, and it gives me a peace of mind that is unmatched.
This great variety of all-natural items arrived from Hyland's and I was intrigued. Unfortunately (unfortunate because my son was sick, no other reason) I had a chance to use the Cold 'n Cough 4 Kids and the Nighttime Cold 'n Cough 4 Kids a lot sooner than I would have liked. Both worked well, and I was happy to have them on hand!
Another product that was included was the Hyland's Calms Forté 4 Kids. I'm not one to use medicine unless I absolutely have to (this drives my husband crazy), so I doubted the need to ever use this one, to be quite honest. Well, as such things go, my little one ended up waking up in the middle of the night recently with an ear ache (Note: This product is not for ear aches. They have ear drops though that are formulated to treat the acute symptoms of ear ache, including fever, pain, irritability and the sleeplessness associated with earaches in children, after diagnosis by a physician).
Usually a tough guy who handles being sick VERY well, he was instead a mess. He was crying and I was rocking him and walking him up and down the halls trying to calm him down while he cried about it hurting. On one the rounds around the house I saw the Calms Forte on the table, and when your child is in pain like that, and restless and unable to sleep, you actively pursue things to help. I used this and it really did work well and allow my little one to sleep until morning, when we then took him to the pediatrician. I so appreciated having it in the house.
Hyland's offers natural and effective (but gentle) remedies for the adult crowd too. Be sure to check out their product line here where you'll find items for first aid, allergies, digestion, pain relief and more. If you haven't tried them, I recommend that you do. We were very pleased with our experiences with the products we used.
