I thought I would share this great tip with winter coming up

my daughter has had a bad cough for days I was talking to my grandmother about it and she told me to use vicks of the bottoms of her feet so that night I did

and it worked she hasn’t lost any sleep like she had been I just thought I would share this because I feel with winter coming up this home remedy would really help some mums out, so all you do is rub vicks into the bottom of your child’s feet then put a pair of socks on and its like magically takes that nasty winter cough away thanks for reading and I really hope this helps

  • I had forgotten about that idea. I have my second cold in 6 weeks. I blamed the 1st on severe change of weather/ temaperatures at the end of vacation. Now I have a 2nd one which has become a chest infection necessitating antibiotics as it worse getting worse by the day- coughing all night and day. No voice either.
    The kids are enjoying that. Doesn’t stop me from giving written instructions. They never though of that…. ha ha


  • I have been doing this for year. It is amazing :)

  • Love Vicks during the winter months.


  • I’ve heard of this but always thought it was just an old wives tale.
