My son never got sick as an infant or toddler, but this all changed once he first started school. Seemingly, he picks up every germ possible! This often results in a domino-effect in the household, making us susceptible to everything from the cold and flu to strep and sinusitis. Needless to say, it is nearly impossible to keep the whole household healthy at times.
It’s normally worse during the cooler seasons, but the cold and flu are known to run amok in my household during the warmer seasons! Even though my family and I’ve been sick countless of times over the years, sick got real when my daughter, now 5, came down with an upper respiratory infection when she was just a few months old. She was far too young for medication, but she was put on a nebulizer to help treat it. I felt so scared and helpless, especially since this was my first time ever experiencing something this serious with one of my children!
Things like this can always happen we least expect it, so we should always be prepared for those Sick Just Got Real moments. That’s why it never hurts take some preventive measures like washing your hands often, relaxing, considering stress can make us more prone to illnesses; using an air purifier or aromatic diffuser (it cleanses the air by killing off airborne pathogens), being active, and getting a good night’s rest. It also helps to have products like Children’s Advil®, Children’s Robitussin®, Infants’ Advil®, and Children’s Dimetapp® on standby for our children.
