I was not looking forward to my son getting sick, but I couldn’t wait to try out the free full sized bottle of Children’s Mucinex Multi-Symptom Cold I received free from Smiley360. I’m a sucker for trying new things! When my son finally got sick, I was less than thrilled that he felt badly, but excited to try the Mucinex.
That excitement quickly turned to pleas for him to ‘JUST SWALLOW IT!’ when I tried to give him the medicine. My son, oddly, is usually very easy to give medicine to. In fact he tends to actually like the grape varieties. Strange, I know. As soon as the Children’s Mucinex touched his tongue he acted as if I gave him poison to eat. It was THAT bad. With lots of pleading and bribing, I finally got him to take it.
It did work very well. My sick lil fella, full of snot, was finally breathing easier. He was much more pleasant to be around and, played with his toys hacking every 10 seconds. When it was finally bedtime he slept through the night without any problems.
I have mixed feeling about this product. On one hand it was such a pain to give it to him, but on the other hand it worked really well. I do plan on using Mucinex again the next time he’s sick, but I will try to find a different flavor or form,
