Hello cold and flu season. Last year, Lydia got pretty sick after our holiday traveling…..and this year? She's in daycare. As much as she loves her little school, let's be honest…..she's going to get sick. It's pretty much inevitable since you have a whole class of toddlers. Germ city!
Last year, we were unprepared. I ended up running out to buy supplies at the last minute. This year? We are stocked and ready with all 5 Flu Season Must Haves!
5 Flu Season Must Haves
Humidifier: All that congestion makes it hard to sleep, so whenever Lydia has a hint of a cough….we use a cold air humidifier at night. It really helps her to breathe more easily and breaks up all that gunk in her lungs!
Thermometer: We finally got an easy to use thermometer. Nothing is worse than wrestling with a sick toddler to try to take their temperature! Our has a sensor and works by simply touching Lydia's forehead.
Nose Aspirator: Once Lydia's little nose is stuffed up, we use a nose aspirator to clear it up. Better to have one clean and ready. These get dirty easily and are hard to wash, so we keep a couple and replace them frequently.
Maty's Healthy Products Baby Chest Rub: In addition to using our humidifier, we love to use Maty's Healthy Product Baby Chest Rub on Lydia's chest. This chemical and toxin free rub gently relieves congestion, and contains lavender which helps little ones sleep.
Maty's Healthy Products Baby Ointment: One of our biggest issues last winter? Chapped noses! Poor Lydia's little nose was rubbed raw by December. Maty's Healthy Products Baby Ointment contains ingredients that closely resemble the natural oils of your baby’s skin…..it's made with natural oils and is Petroleum Free. It's great for preventing diaper rash, but it's also PERFECT for treating chapped noses.
Maty's Healthy Products was started by a mom for babies just like her own daughter. She studied natural remedies and healing techniques…..working to create solutions that were safe for little ones. Maty's Healthy Products are made with all natural ingredients that are chemical and toxin free. Plus, they really work!
