Practical Products For Healthy Kid Winter Survival



Be prepared this winter with these kid health products!


I received several samples to facilitate this post.

 Are you ready for winter? Most people get ready for winter by making sure everyone has warm clothes and making sure that the heater is working. While others think about all those germs and the miserable colds/flu that the kids are always coming down with. So they take the kids to the doctor for their flu shot and start thinking of ways to keep the family healthy through diet and hand washing. Everyone starts the winter thinking that this is going to be the winter that no one gets sick. Despite all the best practices, someone always comes down with a cold. So be prepared this winter with some practical products that you should keep on hand this winter so you are prepared for a sick child.

 Ten Tips For Keeping The Family Healthy

Vitamins are a must for winter survival


  Vitamins are a winter survival must-have in my house. When kids have the vitamins & minerals that their body needs, they are able to fight the germs better. My kids are picky when it comes to taking their daily vitamin and I have learned if it does not taste good, they will not take it. My boys like these Non-GMO Gummy multivitamins from Simply Natural Nutritionals. The delicious flavors of strawberry, cherry, and orange have 30% less sugar than other brands. My boys like that they do not stick to their braces either. These soft gummies are free of soy, nut, yeast, dairy, gelatin, salt, fish, egg, and gluten also!

Mommy my ear hurts!


  What mom wants to hear their little one complain about an earache? Not me and the last that I want is a costly doctor visit only to hear that it was just excess ear wax. Did you know that excess ear wax buildup can cause infection, earache, temporary hearing loss, etc? Not all earaches are ear infections and it just may be too much hard wax that needs to be washed out. If the child does not have a fever or other signs of a cold, then try the Wax RX Wash System before calling the doctor. My older son used to always complain of his ears hurting and after I washed out the ear wax blockage, the pain went away. This professional-grade ear wax cleaning system is easy to use at home with a super easy 3-step process!

My boys love Elderberry Cold & Flu Fighting Gummies

 A go-to winter travel must have kid product


 The last time I traveled, I experienced an incredible ear pressure pain in my ears. It started on the airplane and the pain was awful. It took a long time for my ear to pop, in fact, one ear had the increased pressure several hours after we landed. I wish that I had packed EarPlanes in my carry-on bag. These wonderful soft earplugs come in kid and adult size and can help kids with the pain and popping of air pressure while in-flight or with other pressures of the air. I will be using the EarPlanes on my next trip so I do not experience that awful pressure pain again in my ears. I like that they even have a strap with them so they do not get lost while on the airplane.


 This homemade elderberry syrup is great for cold/flu season!

A soft bunny will help kids rest when they are sick


 When kids are sick they need their rest and this cute Xander Bunny stuffed animal will comfort kids so they can rest. This soft plush bunny comes with a removable heating pack that is filled with Michigan cherry pits & lavender. The bunny provides warmth and the soothing scent of 100% natural lavender that helps kids fall asleep. This bunny is the perfect sick day companion and can also be used as a bedtime buddy year-round. Unlike some stuffed animals, the animal cover of the Xander Bunny can be hand or machine washed to keep it clean and germ-free. This adorable bunny also comes with a 100 % lavender spray so you can spray the relaxing scent on other items or in the air.

  3. Vitamins, vitamins, vitamins. I learned last year that I should use a humidifier in my house. I thought they were just for keeping your house from being dry, but when my youngest kept getting respiratory infections, the doctor told me to start using a cool mist humidifier in the house because dry air breeds germs and moist air will actually keep your house warmer, too.
