Winter is coming and so are the germs.
When winter hits, I always catch some sort of sickness – it never fails. Whether it be a cold, headache, or hints of the horrible flu, the germs somehow find me as soon as the temperatures drop. I find that being sick isn’t that bad, it’s not being able to take care of my family that I hate the most. Little babies and toddlers need their Mommy feeling 100%.
If you’re a Mom then you know how hard it is to just run out to the store. Now think about how difficult it is to go to the pharmacy when you’re feeling under the weather with a three-year-old and a 3-month-old in tow. My solution: a Mommy’s Winter Wellness Toolkit stocked and ready for use.
Mommy’s Winter Wellness Toolkit comes in handy for many scenarios. When I’m downstairs with a fussy baby and temperamental toddler and a headache strikes – I reach for a pain reliever. Sometimes I do have to ask myself, is my headache from lack of sleep, a forgotten morning coffee, or the yells from the little one who thinks she runs the household? Other times it is just germs wreaking havoc on my health. I try to fend off the germs with vitamin C and sanitizer, but if I catch a cold I have wet wipes and tissues for the sneezes and lotion for the dry nose.
Since I am breastfeeding, I am limited to what pain relievers I can take. My safest choice is MOTRIN® IB as the lowest levels are passed through my breastmilk to the baby. I feel like my Winter Wellness Toolkit wouldn’t be complete with MOTRIN® IB as it is responsible for temporarily reducing fever and relieving minor aches and pains due to the common cold, flu, headache, sore throat, or toothache.
Everything in my Winter Wellness Toolkit is easy to find at your local Target. MOTRIN® IB is in the Pain Relief aisle along with some of the other items in my toolkit.
You can easily create your own Winter Wellness Toolkit to put in your car, kitchen, or travel bag. I have two – one for my purse and one that I keep out of the kiddies’ reach in my living room. My mini-pharmacy is convenient when winter germs find us – and I have thought about creating one for Annabelle to use as well. A kids version of Mommy’s Winter Wellness Toolkit could have tissues, sanitizer, lotion, and chapstick.
