Hyland's Baby Cough Syrup

Coughs from colds have all sorts of personalities. There’s the hoarse cough, the barking cough, the dry cough, the tickling cough. But they all share a common trait: they are painful to your baby. Our Cough Syrup, safe for 6 months and up, relieves the harsh symptoms of coughing, and soothes your baby so she or he can rest and heal.* Did we mention the taste? It’s naturally sweetened and might even bring a smile to your baby’s face. That’s the second best kind of medicine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MIRACLE! My 6 month old son has a horrible cough that he caught from his school-aged sister. I gave him some of the Hyland's Baby Cough Syrup and within 20 minutes his cough was gone. He was able to take a nice 2 hour nap today after a very rough night. He loved the taste and cooed as I administered it. The only thing I don't like is that once you take the cap off, there is no plastic stopper that you could insert the syringe into like with some other products I've seen. Its hard to juggle a coughing, clingy baby while attempting to get the proper dosage. It didn't last quite 4 hours but it was long enough to get some much needed sleep!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful product - Amazing results I have been using various Hyland's baby products for my daughter since she was born and was always happy with results. I came down with cold recently and had terrible irritating cough I was not able to shake for couple of days. The cough was keeping me up last night so out of desperation I reached for Hyland's Baby Cough Syrup I had on hand for my daughter. Relief was almost immediate and I was able to sleep trough the night cough free. After repeating the dose again in the morning the cough went away completely! It puts my mind at ease knowing my baby will get such wonderful and quick relief should we need cough medicine anytime soon!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Tool to Cure Your Baby's Cough My 7 month old son has has a chronic cough that just doesnt' seem to go away. He has been sick since he was 3 1/2 months old. Thank God he is older than 6 months because now he is able to take cough and cold meds. Hylands Cough Syrup was the first medicine my son was introduced to and since he's been taking it, he is a much happier camper. No more itching or runny nose, aches, teary eyes, or sneezing thanks to Hylands homepathic remedy. I would definitely recomend this to any parent. No side effects. My son loves the taste.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have for your medicine cabinet! This is the only cough syrup that I have found for children under 1 year of age. My 15 month old took it before bed and she didn't cough for the first time after three sleepness nights of coughing! It's all natural and she loved the taste, too! Thank you, Hyland's for another great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this product! I gave 2.5ml to my 10 month old daughter and she stopped coughing within 5-10 mins. It is not hard to give to her since she likes the taste of it. I love this product!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I was hoping this would help! I use the teething tablets and gel, as well as the cold tablet's but for some reason my son developed a rash all over his body while taking the cough syrup. I stopped the use and the rash went away in 2-3 days. It was not effective. :(

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product does NOT work I used it for my 15 months old for about a week with no results. Just gave it to her before bedtime and now is listening to her coughing for an hour already. What kind of remedy it brings? Do not recommend!
