I recently had the chance to try Children’s Coldcalm Pellets by Boiron . Coldcalm pellets are a homeopathic solution for easing cold symptoms in children. Coldcalm pellets are non-drowsy, with no risk of drug-interactions or overdose.
Coldcalm pellets are for use in children ages 3 and up and are designed to relieve sneezing, runny nose, nasal congestion and pressure, and minor sore throat.
There is little worse than a child with a cold. When it comes to my little guys I approach medicines with caution. Aside from the fact that over-the-counter cold medicines don’t always work well for kids, they can also be harmful for younger children. I think all parents want what is best and safest for their kids, and Coldcalm has a great solution.
Our experience with Coldcalm pellets was wonderful!
Big Brother, Little Brother, and I all came down with colds the day before all the out-of-town family arrived for the holidays–isn’t that the way it always is, I mean, really. Big Brother was hit the hardest with sudden onset runny nose and nasal congestion. I started him on the pellets, used them as directed, and after about 2 hours (yes, they do take a little while to take effect) the nastiness flowing from his nose was drastically reduced. I’m not talking “could be placebo effect” or “just a wishful mom’s perception” kind of reduced, rather “about 75% less snot” kind of reduced. His congestion was eased as long as we kept up with the doses.
I really liked the dispensing design of the bottle. A lot of the containers for kids homeopathic remedies use simple screw on lids that any 1 year old could remove. The top of the Coldcalm bottle is designed so that when you invert the bottle and twist the lid the pellets are dispensed into the cap one at a time. It would take much more ingenuity for a child to figure this one out.
The only drawback is that the bottle of pellets doesn’t last very long (about 2 days, and each package comes with 2 bottles). The bottle says to stop use and ask a doctor if symptoms persist for more than 3 days so the small amount in each bottle is likely a deliberate attempt to help parents be aware of persisting symptoms.
