Imagine my delight to read something so valuable, useful and unexpected when I clicked on this thread. My original aim had been to discover news of the country’s most brilliant refuse centre in Ireland!
"Tip" obviously still retaining a very English meaning in my head even after 3 yrs (nr enough) here!October 3, 2009 at 8:59 am #78993
some posted this up here last year, I gave it a try with snuffle baby and it didnt work… tried it again with vick and it work a treatOctober 3, 2009 at 9:17 am #78994
Did u eva hear bout vicks on brown paper under a vest and pjs (ie next to the chest) when going to bed also?
I never tried it as imagine all that wrinkling,crinkling business wheneva child makes slightest move would wake up and thus defeat the object of exercise, but 2 neighbours swear by it!October 3, 2009 at 1:45 pm #78998
Thats really really old, my mother would have used goose fat on brown paper as a child…. thank God she used vick on us 😆 😆 😆October 3, 2009 at 2:05 pm #78999

I have used both Snuffle baby and Vicks on my kids this week but on the chest and back not the feet. DD is six months and too young for vicks – had very bad night on Thursday night with cold – put the snuffle baby on her chest and back and did the job last night.
DS is 2 yrs and 6 months – could not find the snuffle baby earlier in the week for him so bought vicks – again has been sleeping soundly since.
Both still have their colds but are managing to sleep soundly. I don’t think there is a cure for the common cold – just lots of fluids and try to make them comfy and it will run it’s course in a week or so.October 3, 2009 at 3:59 pm #79001
ds is 16 months he started with this barking cough 2 weeks ago and at night he was getting sick from coughing .. he is getting inhalers and steroids but the vicks has worked really well he slept til 9 am this morning 😆October 3, 2009 at 7:57 pm #79006

A cough at nightime only can be a sign of AsthmaOctober 4, 2009 at 9:32 am #79011

i’m dying with a head cold can’t breathe and pronounce a few words funny, rubbed vicks on my chest must try tonight on my feet and put socks on, will let ya’s knowOctober 5, 2009 at 9:09 am #79026munchinParticipant
i’ve done this on dd last yr and yr before in particular – as soon as i hear i coughing i do it and it does work for her. Haven’t had to try it on babs as of yet – the snuffle babe can be hard to find so when i see it i usually buy a few 😉October 5, 2009 at 1:07 pm #79035JedtMember
Thats flipping brilliant!! My 2 year old does not like Vicks on her chest or back so this is ideal. She is a bit snuffly at moment so will try it tonight….October 6, 2009 at 7:50 am #79059scole1Member
well girls this so works, i was dying with a cold, still have it but not as bad, ds1 has a little cold so put it on his feet too, works a treat…
