Cold and Flu Essentials Every Home Needs

Cold and Flu season is upon us and I don’t know about you, but I like to be prepared for it. I honestly hope and pray we all don’t get it, but a cold is hard to miss.

Here are my tops picks for Cold and Flu Essentials Every Homes Needs.

Stuffy Noses

 

Vicks BabyRub

Vicks BabyRub

I loved giving my babies and toddlers massages with a little Vicks BabyRub when they were sick. It seemed to help relax and calm them for naps and bedtime.

A must have for Cold and Flu Season

Simply Saline

I LOVED these when my babies were sick. I know it seems like torture but they can breath so much better with all that gunk out of their noses.

Simply Saline Swabs

Simply Saline Swabs

These swabs do the same thing as the sprays, but don’t irritate the babies and toddlers. Win/win!

NoseFrida The Snot Sucker Nasal Aspirator

NoseFrida The Snotsucker Nasal Aspirator

Yes I know this looks disgusting but it comes highly recommended Dr’s.

DoTerra Breath

doTerra Breath

Now that my girls are a little older, I will rub a little bit of doTerra Breath on them when they are sick. It really seems to open up their airways.

Sore Throat/Cough

 

Zarbees Cough Medicine

Zarbee’s Natural Cough Syrup

I discovered Zarbees with my first daughter and I’m so glad I did. It uses honey and other natural ingredients to help kids feel better.

Ludens-wild-cherry

Luden’s Wild Cherry Throat Drops

I find that my kids can’t handle the really strong cough drops, but these are perfect.

Halls Breezers

Halls Breezers Cool Berry

My girls also love these Halls Breezers, Cool Berry.

Cool Mist humidifier

Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier

I honestly have 3 cool mist humidifiers in my home. I store them where they are easy to access because coughs come at night. My best tip for a humidifier, is to buy one that doesn’t have a filter to replace. Those get costly and honestly I don’t have time to worry about that when I’m taking care of sick kids.

Fever/Aches and Pains

Vicks Behind Ear Gentle Touch thermometer

Vick’s Behind Ear Gentle Touch Thermometer

I actually went to a lecture a few years back by a fantastic Pediatrician, Meg Meeker. She raved about these behind the ear thermometers and I have to agree. My babies would never hold still for forehead scan. And forget any other type of thermometer. This one is done in seconds and shows the past temperatures so you can see if the fever is raging or has come down.

Children's Tylenol

Children’s Tylenol

I always make sure I have this in stock.

Getting Rid of Germs!

Zarbees Elderberry Gummies

Zarbees Naturals Mighty Bee Gummy Immune Support

My girls love to take these tummies. They each have a burst of Elderberry, Vitamin C and Zinc help support the immune system.

Clorox Wipes

Clorox Wipes

Any kind of wipe that will kill germs is good by me. I wipe down all the areas that get touched that I might miss on a regular clean. Make sure door knobs, light switches, phones, and remotes get a good cleaning.

Nature's Miracle Floor Cleaner

Nature’s Miracle Stain & Odor Remover

This came highly recommended from a friend. It removes the smell of throw-up, and any stains from it, in minutes. This is a definite “must-have-on-hand” item!

So did I catch it all? What would you add to my list?

Today I was featured on the Antique Farmhouse site for their designer pick series. I chose this 2-tier distressed wood stand. It’s a rustic look  that it looks like it could’ve been handed down or picked up thrifting, with the worn wood and fun knob legs, and spindle center. I love that it can serve so many purposes – holding party food, keeping craft supplies organized and even housing a hot chocolate station. Good news we’re giving one away at the bottom of this post!

Hot Chocolate Station Hot Chocolate Station

My kids beg for hot chocolate after their chilly, and lately snowy, walk home from school. So I used the 2-tier stand to set up a hot chocolate station.

The bottom holds their favorite flavors of Stephens Hot Cocoa and marshmallows. The top tier has their favorite-whipped cream, candy canes, mugs and chocolate syrup. The Torani syrups sit off to the side.

Hot Chocolate Bar 2-tier stand

I also love the handle at the top, it makes it easy to pick up the entire stand and move it to a new location. When it isn’t housing hot chocolate fixings I think it will be perfect in my craft room! What would you use it for?
