As many of you know, it seems that our little Emerson gets hit hard during cold and flu season. From a constant runny nose and cough, to rising high fevers and febrile seizures. Earlier this week we went to a Naturopath in an effort to identify the root of these illnesses, and explore how we can try to fight these bugs as naturally as possible, while still keeping his condition within safe limits. So, when my friends at Brill Communications sent us this homeopathic Cold & Flu First Aid Kit to help us get through the upcoming flu season, I was all YES YES YES!!! #ad
Featuring natural cold & flu products, check out the goodies we received and started using right away!
All Day Syrup for Baby and 4 Kids – Children can be fussy to begin with, add in a cough and the fussiness multiples. I know this is true for my kiddo! Plus, its painful to hear him suffer. Hyland’s All Day Syrup is safe for babies six months and up, while the 4 Kids Syrup is for children 2 years and older. This formula contains no Aspirin or Ibuprofen or Naproxen, so you won’t have to worry about sleepy or stimulant side effects either. A homeopathic syrup that settles sneezing, soothes sore throats and loosens congestion. Available at Rexall & Loblaw banners.
BeKool Soft Gel Sheets – Emerson’s fevers get out of control. Wednesday night his temperature hung around 102 degrees all night, and these BeKoool Soft Gel Sheets worked perfectly to sneak on his forehead while he slept. The sheets also don’t need refrigeration so you can keep them tucked away in your diaper bag or child’s backpack, just in case a fever creeps up on-the-go! Available at Shoppers Drug Mart.
J.R. Watkins Menthol Camphor Bath Soak – We used J.R. Watkins Menthol Camphor Bath Soak this week during Emerson’s bathtime, and it was just what we needed. Menthol oils help to expand airways and make breathing a little easier, while camphor works as a decongestant and cough suppressant. The eucalyptus and lavender scents worked wonders for creating a relaxing bedtime routine. Available at Pharmasave.
Lypsyl Extreme Cold Sore Relief – This cold sore treatment contains cleansing propolis and moisturizing Swedish Beeswax to relieve pain and itching instantly. Although we are fortunate to not experience cold sores in our house, I’m sure this lipsole will still work wonderfully for cracked lips during these dry winter months. Available at Shoppers Drug Mart & Rexall.
Well, that’s it! That is all the goodies we have to share from our #gifted Cold & Flu First Aid Kit. I hope all you mamas and babes stay flu-free this season, but if you can’t be so lucky, maybe some of these remedies will be of use!
