Our household is finally getting over its first (and hopefully last) outbreak of the cold and flu season. It started with my husband. Then it spread to our two-year-old. Then it spread to yours truly. It was a rough one, too, sending each of us to our local doctor for a check-up. (Mine turned into bronchitis. Fun!)
One thing I have learned over the years, is that fighting a cold is a lot easier when you have the right supply of cold and flu medicine and supplies on hand. That includes plenty of tissues, chicken noodle soup, decongestants, and Vitamin C tablets. For our two-year-old, that stockpile includes Little Remedies products.
What I like most about Little Remedies is that their “less is more” philosophy. Their products contain only what is needed to make your child feel better – no saccharin, alcohol, artificial flavors, artificial coloring, dyes or harmful preservatives. In other words, it’s a more natural approach to fighting illness, which is something I’ve always believed is best.
Two of my favorite go-to Little Remedies products are their Honey Elixir (for colds) and Little Remedies for Fevers Infant Fever/Pain Reliever.
Honey Elixir is a natural alternative to traditional cough syrup products. As the name suggests, it’s made with great tasting honey to soothe coughs and sore throats naturally. The Infant Fever/Pain Reliever temporarily reduces fever and minor aches and pains due to common cold, flu, headache, sore throat and toothache. It’s one of the only brand name fever reducers for infants currently on the market.
Of course, a little prevention is often the best medicine. Below are a few things I try to do to keep everyone healthy and happy during cold and flu season. What things do you do to keep viruses at bay?
- KEEP IT CLEAN – I’m a nut about washing hands and keeping organic sanitizing wipes around the house to clean high traffic surfaces. And wipes for public places too, of course!
- AVOID SICK KIDS – This goes without saying and isn’t always easy, but if my child is sick, I respectfully avoid putting her in contact with other kids.
- COVER UP – This is a classic lesson, but I always try to sneeze into a tissue and cough into my elbow to keep my hands clean and avoid contaminating other surfaces.
I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Little Remedies. I received product samples as well as a promotional item as a thank-you for participating.Pin It
