Ever since Baby was an infant, she never once took any oral meds to treat her cough or runny nose. That’s because since she was 7 weeks old, she had to take oral antibiotics everyday until she was 14 months old (that’s after the Ureteral Reimplantation surgery in May last year). Our paed has all the while been not in favor of her eating too much meds as she already had enough of meds in her body. So each time Baby is down with a flu, stuffy nose and phlegm, I will let her inhale the Ventolin, given through the Aero Chamber. Though very costly, the Aero Chamber is a good investment.
About 2 weeks ago, Baby had runny nose and phlegm. Again, I self treated her with Esberitox and the Ventolin. After 3 days of Ventolin inhalation (2 puffs, 3x a day), she was well again. I never like my kids to take oral meds for runny nose, phlegm and cough. I also kept her free from cow’s milk throughout the period she was unwell. Cow’s milk is known to induce phlegm. Until today, Baby is still drinking organic soy bean milk and organic oatmeal milk. I shall blog about these 2 in my next post.
