How shoudl I introduce honey to my toddler?

My 18-month-old has a bad cough. His pediatrician recommended honey at night to calm the cough. He hasn’t had honey yet. Is there anything I need to watch out for when introducing him to it?

The honey is safer after the first 12 months. You can mix it with some warm water and put it in a sippy or you can see if he will eat it off of a spoon.

Dissolve it in some hot water and add to whatever drink you want to give her (keep in mind flavor though) I always use honey with my kids and myself when we start feeling something coming on and it works like a charm on my 5 and 4 year old and I’ve been doing it since they were around 2

After a year of Broken marriage, my lover left me with one kid, I felt like ending it all, i almost committed suicide because she left us with nothing, i was emotionally down all this while. Thanks to a spell caster called Dr pascal which i met online who brought my Lover back to me. On one faithful day, as I was browsing through the internet, I came across several of testimonies about Dr pascal Some people testified that he brought their Ex lover so I gave a try and it ended well you can also contact him via email.

didn’t you ask the dr

That seems like something you should have asked the doctor when they suggested using honey :woman_facepalming:t2:

The only risk of honey is that it can not be pasteurized. It is not typically an allergen. The concern is botulism, not a reaction. After 1 it is safe.

Do not use raw honey, it could cause botulism

You only need to worry about infant botulism until 1yo. It’s fine to give a 2yo. Honey isn’t a common allergen

No honey in any form until 1.
I like the old school humidifiers and I put mine on full blast with the door closed.
I like matys all natural chest rub.
It had never failed me

Why not take your doctor’s advice not total strangers

Since your child is OVER 1 year of age…put it on some toast, waffle, pancakes.

Honey is safe for bigger babies over 1 yr old but you have to mix it with warm water & maybe add a little lemon if it’s for cough treatment. Let the kid take tiny sips of it or use a dropper before bedtime.

I just gave it to her one day.:joy: She’s a happy healthy 3 year old.

Warm some milk put the honey in it put it in a cup and give it to your child! Since your child is 18 months (over a year old) your good my doctor told me at her year visit to start giving her honey to boost her immune! Thw warm milk and honey will help feel better and sooth for a good night sleep

Pineapple juice is a good cough surpressant

I thought you meant your man​:woman_facepalming::woman_facepalming::rofl::rofl: I always call my man my hunni… but put it in some tea.
