Ok, we have made it to February! How is your family holding up, health-wise?
Mine definitely got hit hard this season. I got the flu (even though I had the flu shot 6 weeks prior!), and then both of my girls got the flu, as well. Tim’s shot seemed to take, thank goodness!
And honestly, I can’t even keep up with the number of colds we have all been through this year. I think when you have a little one in preschool, that’s just part of the deal. Lots and lots of germs will be headed your way every single day!
Medicine We Love and Trust
It is very important, therefore, that we keep a well-stocked medicine cabinet so that we can do battle with these germs and try to minimize the amount of time we have to lose at work and at school. PediaCare is a big part of our anti-illness arsenal. We have been using their products for infants as well as their products for children all season to help with fever reduction and general relief.
I just learned that there’s a new product in their line and because I trust this brand so much, I have already put it on my shopping list for this weekend when I go to Walgreens. It’s called PediaCare® Children’s Cold & Flu Hydration. This is designed for children ages 2-11 as a means to help them stay hydrated. We all know from experience just how tough it can be to keep fluids in a very sick child. But did you know that simply offering water will not replenish electrolytes? It’s true! Electrolytes have to be consumed in order to return to the body after they have been lost. This product restores them.
Additionally, PediaCare Cold & Flu Hydration gives children immune boosting antioxidants. Perhaps what I love the most about it, though, is the way it is packaged. It comes in single-use, pre-measured packets. You simply mix the powder (which is grape flavored) with eight ounces of water. I can’t tell you how many half-used huge bottles of other electrolyte-boosting products I have had to throw away because the serving size was too large. I’m glad PediaCare eliminated that problem!
