When my child has a cough, it makes it impossible for her to sleep at night. One effective remedy I have seen over the years is to apply a little vicks under her feet at night. It really helps with the cough and she sleeps better.

tulsi leaves boiled with grated ginger also helps. Boil it down till it is half the quantity. Give it to the little one with a dash of honey so that it is easier for them to take it.

Strain and keep it for using whole day. Add very little sugar (or salt) to tase and give two spoons at a time (Twice a day - morning evening) to your kid. Elders can have 1/2 cup at a time and can add rock salt or lemon drops to taste. This is a very effective home made syrup and you can see its effect in two doses. Best effect when given at night before sleeping. This also takes care of stomach pains or indigestion which is sometimes seen along with cough.
