My kids love Christmas, but I know what else comes with this holiday season – a hundred of chances to get sick.
You know it’s coming when you feel a tickle in your throat or the sneesy feeling that will just not go away. You can pretend you’re not sick and hope for the best, or take the first steps to feeling better. Luckily Robitussin® 12 Hour Cough Relief and Robitussin® Maximum Strength Severe Multi-Symptom Cough, Cold & Flu are available to help you tackle whatever this cold and flu season throws your way.
Did you know that one dose of Robitussin® 12 Hour Cough Relief provides you with up to 12 hours of cough relief, delivering long-lasting cough control and all day and all night. Robitussin® Maximum Strength Severe Multi Symptom Cough, Cold & Flu products offer powerful relief from your worst cough, cold, & flu symptoms and come in both daytime and nighttime formulas.
However, while Robitussin® is great to tackle the worst cough and cold symptoms, you know you need comfort for a speedy recovery. My “Feel Better Formula” includes a blanket, a box of tissues, and some serious Netflix watch time.
Looking for other ways to keep cold and flu away?
- Make washing their hands a routine. Washing hands is so important, especially with young kids who love to touch everything and put it in their mouth or touch their face. They should wash their hands before they get to school and right when they get home. Make sure they are washing their hands before every meal they eat as well as after they use the bathroom. Washing hands is important in making sure you are not spreading any illnesses around.
- Get adequate sleep. Sleep is so important in making sure they have a strong immune system. Strive to get your children in bed on time and make sure that it is a consistent routine for them. Overworked and tired bodies become more susceptible to illness. It is also important to consider how much after school activities you are signing your child up for. Adding too much can be overwhelming therefore not ensuring that they are getting all their proper rest and downtime to fight illness and recoup from the day.
- Take probiotics and vitamins. Probiotics is a great way to naturally boost a child’s immunity. It helps the body absorb vitamins such as vitamin D3, minerals and other nutrients. Making sure they are taking a good dose of vitamin D is important as well. This vitamin D is great at warding of colds and the flu.
- Keep the Humidifier running. With the colder weather creeping in this usually means indoor air will be a lot dryer. This air can dry out nasal passages and this can make illnesses last longer. Using a humidifier every night during the winter will keep the air moist and help make your children less susceptible to viruses.
