Home Remedy for Sore Throat: Honey and Lemon Juice for Baby
Lemon dries up congestion and honey provides a soothing coating, says Lane Johnson, MD, associate professor of clinical family and community medicine at the University of Arizona College of Medicine. In fact, a recent study found that a spoonful of honey eased kids’ coughs even better than cough medicine.
Mix together a tablespoon of each, microwave for 20 seconds until
warm (not hot), and have your child swallow the mixture a teaspoon
at a time.
Caution: Honey is not safe for babies under 1 year.
