With the first cool, fall wind blowing through Texas, I know that it's time to start preparing for cold and flu season. We all have bouts with allergies, viruses, coughs, and more during fall and winter, despite all that we do to prevent us from getting sick. Sometimes all of the prevention is not good enough, and we need to have things on hand just to make the littles feel better when they're sick!
A few years ago, we were able to try Maty's Healthy Products. We really enjoyed their natural products for kids, so I was happy to stock our medicine cabinet with Maty's products once again. Wouldn't you know, Baby Brother, who is almost 2, came down with a cold last week and developed a pretty nasty cough that kept waking him up at night. I rubbed some Maty's Baby Chest Rub on his feet and put a pair of socks on him and sent him back to bed. The all natural baby chest rub did the trick and he was able to sleep the rest of the night without his cough waking him up. And you know, if it helps the baby to sleep better and NOT wake me up all night, then it's a huge blessing!
I've become frustrated with coughs since having children. It's just so sad to hear your little ones coughing and not being able to sleep soundly. We have tried numerous things to treat coughs, but there really aren't very many choices for cough syrup for any kids under about 6, because they are not safe. Maty's provides drug-free relief with their cough syrup for children. Just look at the ingredients list:
My last "must have" for the cold and flu season is Maty's petroleum free baby ointment. This stuff is great for diaper rashes, eczema, and the sore and red nose that comes from wiping it a million times a day. (My secret tip that I learned from hubby is to sneak in after they go to sleep and slather them with this stuff so they don't fuss and rub it off!) It works to protect the skin and create a barrier from moisture. And the fact that it's natural and petroleum free is awesome!
Maty's is available in many places, including my favorite grocery store, HEB, along with Amazon, Target, and the Maty's website. Also, look on the site for the store locator, product info, and all about these wonderful products!
How do you prepare for cold and flu season?
