I do a lot of things to help prevent the spread of germs in my home, especially during cold and flu season. Three of the best tips I can give you about cold and flu prevention are:
- Wash your hands frequently.
- Wash your hands frequently.
- Wash your hand frequently.
As you can tell from my list, I think washing your hands frequently is CRUCIAL to staying healthy. It is so important to teach your children to wash their hands often, especially if they go to school and/or daycare where they are spending time in close quarters with others. It may sound crazy, but when I hear about an illness going around in our school, I make my children change into clean clothing when they get home from school. I hope that helps keep them from bringing germs into our home on their clothes.
Despite my best efforts, my children still catch a cold from time to time. And when that happens, I want to choose the right medication to treat their symptoms. Little Remedies® products shares a “Less is More” philosophy I completely agree with and recommend to other parents. The Little Remedies® medications are effective and contain only what is needed to make your child feel better – no saccharin, alcohol, artificial flavors, artificial coloring, dyes or harmful preservatives.
I feel good about giving my children a medicine that can treat their symptoms without putting unnecessary ingredients into their bodies. My children use Little Remedies® to help them feel better when they are sick. One of our favorite products is the Little Remedies® For Noses™ Sterile Saline Nasal Mist. At the first sign of a stuffy nose, I use this on the kids to help flush out the mucus and soothe nasal passages. Everyone from my toddler to my tween uses it – and my tween knows it works so well that he even asks for me to give it to him!
Be Prepared – Plan Ahead For Cold and Flu Season
Avoid late night runs to the drugstore when you stock your medicine cabinet with the basics like Little Remedies® For Fevers™ Infant Fever/Pain Reliever and Little Remedies® For Colds™ Honey Elixir. The Infant Fever/Pain Reliever is one of the only brand name fever reducers for infants on the market today. I like to keep a children’s acetaminophen on hand at all times because it is useful to treat many symptoms. This is a safe way to temporarily reduce fever and minor aches and pains due to common cold, flu, headache, sore throat and toothache.
The Little Remedies® For Colds™ Honey Elixir is a natural alternative to traditional cough syrup products. I love that the Honey Elixir is safe for toddlers 12 months or older and is made with great-tasting honey. The Honey Elixir is an effective way to soothe sore throats and coughs, and contains no artificial flavors or colors, no saccharin, alcohol, dyes or gluten.
