How to keep a sick kid comfortable!

Here are some tips to keep your sick kid comfortable.

If its the flu:

Running a fever? Use Tylenol or Advil. Offer plenty of clear fluids. Try getting them to have a cool bath to bring down the fever. If they wont have a bath give them a Popsicle. I make my own using jello. Just prepare the jello as you normally would and then pour it into Popsicle molds. They melt slower and keep their flavor! If they are over the age of 2 you can give children's Gravol. Keep spare blankets, sheets and jammies close by because children don't give much warning when they throw up, expect some messes.Relax and read some books, do a puzzle or watch a movie. Encourage them to rest and you should rest while they do, you might be in for a night of throwing up!


If its a cold:

Use super soft Kleenex, little noses get raw and sore quickly. Try a steam bath in your bathroom. Turn on the shower to extremely hot as well as the sink an sit or stand in the bathroom with your child. Do not leave your child in the bathroom alone! Use a humidifier in their bedroom. Prop their mattress up with an extra pillow or blanket, the elevation helps keep their noses from plugging and therefor makes it easier to breathe. Use saline spray or drops in their nose. Prepare for some hugs and cuddles your baby is gonna need your undivided attention! I wish you all the best and get well soon!
