Tiffany, by all means, give it a whirl. I know it works for me. And I have bronchitis, which means, when I get a cold, I get it bad.

Here's a cough recipe that's been handed down for a long time.
Fill a half gallon jar with peppermint candy. Pour a fifth of whiskey over the candy. As the candy disolves, it will settle to the bottom of the jar. When all is disolved, add 1/2 cup of lemon juice & shake it up to make sure everything is mixed well. You can then devide it into pints & give to family or friends. Take 1 to 2 teaspoons for sore throats & coughs. Works wonders.

Great to hear from you, Diane! I hope you had a Merry Christmas. I did have him... December 6th. We named him Gatsby Fitzgerald. He was 9lb 4oz. Not our biggest though. We had two in the 10lb range (highest was 10lb 8oz), two in the 9lb range, and 2 8lbs.

I actually had a pretty peculiar labor. I was 10cm for a day or so before I even started labor. Then I leaked amniotic fluid for the day. They wanted me to try to push him out, but I didn't have any cramps or the urge to push. So I went to the birth center, got in the tub, and tried to push for a little (half heartedly) then went home. My midwife gave me some cottonroot extract. I went home with it. 5 hours later, I woke up a little crampy. So I went to the birth center, got back in the tub, and delivered in 20 minutes. The hubs delivered, afterward he then woke up the midwife who was sleeping in the other room. My mum had our kids in the other room. We went home about 4 hours later. Wonderful, peaceful birth.

He is such a good baby. He sleeps through the night, doesn't cry, and has allowed me and the hubs to be well rested. All the perks of a six baby. Oh, has and a full head of brown black hair. Cutie, cutie.

About the recipe, you can remove the bits after you mix it with the hot water. Sometimes I like to chew on the bits. It is very pungent though. You could make it in a teapot, then pour through a tea sieve. I like to keep my teapot on a candlelit tea warmer. Helps when I was recently ill. I actually was feeling quite miserable right before Thanksgiving. Thanks to a great husband and oldest son, I felt better in time for the birth..

Hope all is well. Don't be a stranger. Hugs.
