It’s finally fall which means cold + flu season is here and those pesky cold symptoms are bound to pop up sometime. No matter how much I clean and we continuously wash our hands, Tatiana is bound to get sick. Well, guess what? Sick got real, real early for us. Not even a week into the school year Tatiana had already caught a bug. I couldn’t believe it. I was so upset that during the first week of school someone would send their sick kid to school to spread all of their germs.
But hey, life happens right? So we miserably rolled with all of the punches. Tatiana had every cold symptom in the book including a fever, runny nose, body aches, and irritability. It was bad. For a minute, I freaked out. My poor baby girl was just not having it and wasn’t her normal perky self. Then I remembered how we always keep Children’s Dimetapp® Multi-Symptom Cold Relief Dye-Free on hand for every time sick gets real. A correct dose every 4-6 hours usually kicks those cold symptoms right in the butt and has her feeling better in no time. It helps to ease her stuffy and runny nose plus makes that obnoxious cough a little quieter. Another one of our favorite products to ease her cold symptoms and those pesky body aches is Children’s Advil®. Both of these come in grape flavor which is great because even though she’s sick, she’s still picky about the flavor of medicine that she gets.
So mamas, next time sick gets real in your house don’t freak out. Here’s a few quick tips on how to comfort your child and ease those cold symptoms:
- Stay calm.
- Read them books.
- Run them a hot bubble bath.
- Talk them through it.
- Make sure that you’re medicine cabinet is fully stocked with the correct medicine.
- Give the correct dosage on time.
- Have lots of tissues on hand.
- Don’t forget about the hand sanitizer and washing your hands in between contact so that you’re not spreading the germs too.
- Keep them hydrated.
- Remember that in the end everything is going to be just fine.
