Preparing for Cold and Flu Season
This post is brought to you by California Kids and contains affiliate links. All opinions are my own.
With a husband who works around hundreds of kids a week, and two grandparents who work in elementary schools – I make sure I head into cold and flu season prepared.
I have to say that the cleaners at the school my husband works at are very good at staying on top of all the cleaning. There are also plenty of hand sanitizer stations throughout the building so that staff and students can keep their hands clean.
If you would like to learn more about the benefits of hand sanitizer stations, phs Direct are the UK’s leading supplier of commercial wholesale hand sanitiser, helping to keep offices, workspaces and businesses as a whole up to vigorous hygiene standards. Take a look at some of the resources on their website to find further information about the products that companies, schools, and other facilities can use to maintain high hygiene standards.
Alongside using cleaning products to keep my house as clean as possible, my favorite remedy for keeping cold and flu at bay is breast milk. Perfect, since I’m nursing Beckett! I’ll also be able to pump milk for Graydon if he seems to be getting sick.
My second favorite remedy is Elderberry syrup! I highly recommend reading more about it. This stuff has been a lifesaver since becoming a mom. It’s natural and I’ve taken it pregnant and while breastfeeding. I even get the kids Syrup for Graydon. It’s great for keeping your immune system up and helping get over illness quicker. This is the kind I get!
I also love California Baby products.
• Hand Soap – it’s great having a gentle and effective hand soap during this time! Especially since we will be constantly washing our hands.
• Hand Sanitizer – This stuff is amazing. It’s perfect for on the go, and it isn’t filled with a bunch of icky toxins and chemicals. I love that it’s perfectly safe for little hands!
• Bubble Bath with Eucalyptus • No matter how hard I try, these boys will likely catch something. Nothing makes you feel better like a nice warm bubble bath and the smell of eucalyptus to help you breathe and relax.
Of course eating healthy and getting a good amount of rest is important as well!
