List Rules Cold/flu relief, not allergies - most of these are not for kids under 2, read the labels.

Everyone knows these products don't "cure" anything, they only provide relief. And what's worse than being helpless when your kids are suffering? Which kids' cold/flu products work the best for your kids? I know that, for myself, I only use the multi-symptom ones, and only at night when they need to be able to sleep. What about you? Vote for the cold or flu medicines or remedies you prefer and add anything you think is missing.
