This weather has sure been strange and our family has seemed to be “getting over a cold” for a few weeks now. When J-Girl is sick she is not a happy camper and it is makes for a long day at home for both of us. During the day it is better since I can be with her playing and reading books but at night I really am anxious and I don’t sleep very well. Hearing her cough and be congested over the monitor is difficult for me.
I have lots of nurses and other medical related family and friends who think that well she just has a cold so give her some Motrin or Tylenol and use a humidifier in her room. Easy Peasy. Right!? Well, being a researcher at heart I wanted to see what other options were available instead of our usual routine. I found the Zarbee’s products right away and soon thought that I would give them a try! I am not one of those “crunchy” moms by any means but I do see how living that lifestyle has plenty of benefits and I thought that by trying Zarbee’s all-natural children’s cough syrup & cough and sleep drink would be a good way to get my feet wet. I am so glad that I was able to review Zarbee’s and share my results with you readers.See All Zarbee’s Products on Amazon.com.
“Zarbee’s was developed by one of the country’s top pediatricians, Zak Zarbock, M.D. In 2008, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) found it unsafe for parents to give any of the current children’s cough syrups to kids under the age of four…Dr. Zarbock was frustrated that he was not able to offer any relief to his young patients with a coughs and sore throats… That led to Dr. Zarbock’s discovery of a compelling clinical trial showing buckwheat honey was more effective at calming coughs and sore throats in children and young adults.” – Zarbee’s website

Zarbee’s all-natural children’s cough syrup is a safe and effective drug free dietary supplement that helps soothes sore throats and boosts the immune system too. Zarbee’s cough syrup formula uses a special blend of antioxidant-rich dark honeys that have been clinically proven to be more effective and safer than the traditional cough medicine in today’s market. When used correctly this cough syrup will help with minor throat irritation, night coughing, scratchy throats, hoarseness and help boost your little ones immune system. The syrup is also Gluten, dye & preservative free and has less than 5 grams of sugar per teaspoon in the 4 oz. bottle. Flavors available are Grape, Cherry and Lemon.

J-Girl loves the natural grape flavor and it has helped immensely at night for her coughing. I have also noticed that in the morning her voice is not as hoarse and dry. I have been using the Zarbee products for the past few nights and have seen a huge improvement! I am glad that I have found a product that is safe to give her along with other medicine or just on its own and know that it is helping her feel better.
New Zarbee’s All-Natural Nighttime Cough and Sleep Drink Review:
Zarbee’s has just recently introduced a new product and I was able to try it out as well. Their new Cough & Sleep Drink is also another option to use when your kiddos are not feeling well. The Safe and Natural Drink is effective for children 2 years+ and helps relieve sore throats and coughing while promoting healthy sleep with a small amount of melatonin (.5 mg). As I mentioned earlier, hearing J-Girl coughing and then waking herself up numerous times throughout the night is just not fun and I can say that having her have one 2 oz. serving before bedtime has helped her get a good nights rest with less waking up. I also love the fact that our whole family can use these products!
Zarbee’s cough & sleep drink is also Gluten, dye & preservative free, there are no drugs or alcohol in the formula and they are safe and effective when used once per day, before bedtime for ages 2 years+. Each box has 6 servings and suggested retail is $8.99. The natural grape flavor (with elderberry) is easy to drink but if you need to dilute it you can also add another 2 oz of hot water to make a 4oz. serving. I dilute it for J-Girl but use just 2 oz. of water for an adult dose.
