12 Essential Items for Cold and Flu Season
As the colder weather rolls in, now is the time to stock your pantry with a few supplies.
Here are my 12 cold and flu season “essentials” for families with infants and toddlers:
- Cool-mist humidifier
- Nasal saline spray
- A bulb suction
- An age-appropriate thermometer
- Infant/child acetaminophen, for babies over the age of 2 months
- Infant/child ibuprofen, for kids over the age of 6 months
- Electrolyte solution
- New toothbrushes
- Hand sanitizer
- Disinfectant spray
- Disinfectant wipes
- Rubber gloves
The best defense is a good offense, so don’t forget to WASH YOUR HANDS and GET A FLU SHOT!
Is there anything else I’m forgetting? Add your suggestions to the list in the comments below.
Note: I incorrectly referred to the cool-mist humidifier as a "vaporizer" in the video. Please excuse my error.
