    Lightbulb Cough Syrup Warning: DO NOT USE TO MAKE A CHILD SLEEPY

    in my fight against the common cold, i took a nyquil knockoff which on the label stated:

    DO NOT USE TO MAKE A CHILD SLEEPY


    do people seriously do this to their children?

    Yes. My soon-to-be-ex-wife liked to give our children benedryl to "help" them sleep. It's fine if they really are sick but as a sleep aid, I feel it's wrong. Her and I went round and round about that. Then again, she self medicated with booze so I shouldn't be surprised.

    Before a noun

    People have been doing it for decades.

    The Simpsons even had it in an episode.

    Cough Syrup Warning: DO NOT USE TO MAKE A CHILD SLEEPY

    My grandmother would laugh at giving a kid NyQuil. She told us to use whiskey. Teething? Whiskey on the gums. Coughing? Liquor in the milk in the bottle.

    It has nothing to do with drugging your kids and everything to do with most young children becoming excitable after taking diphenhydramine.

    I got your meaning. It just read a little more pervy than you intended.

    Not I.

    I typically just use the back of my hand.

    I was about to weigh in on this, specifically what we do/don't do with our child, but then remembered in no way do I want or need parenting advice from the sick ****s on this message board.

    Knock-off NyQuil? No. Benedryl? Yes. Or hard liquor.

    Some of you freaks could use some rectal brevital.

    As to the original post, the Tylenol would be the concern in NyQuil. You could knock off your kid's liver.

    Yeah, chloral hydrate sounds great!!

    If you need your child to sleep try some chamomile tea and half of a 3mg melatonin pill
