Sick Just Got Real

Between over-packed schedules and playdates, sticky messes and scraped knees, late nights and early morning wakeup calls, you’ve been through it all. Somedays it may seem the minute you even start thinking about a little “me” time, disaster strikes, and that’s only when everyone in the household is healthy! Add a sick little one to the mix and nothing else seems to matter.

My son never got sick as an infant or toddler, but it was a different story once he first started school. It was then nearly impossible to keep us all healthy since he seemingly picked up every germ possible. This always resulted in a domino-effect in the household.

My family and I’ve now lost count of times we’ve visited the doctor since we’ve been susceptible to various maladies, from the cold and flu to strep and sinusitis. It’s usually 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 came down with an upper respiratory infection when she was just a few months old. This required nebulized therapy to help reduce the upper respiratory infection. I felt so scared and helpless, especially since this was my first time ever experience 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 Infants’ and Children’s Advil®, Children’s Robitussin®, and Children’s Dimetapp® on standby for our children.
