Sick Babies

The worst news ever when you wake up for an adventure is finding your little ones with stuffy noses, cranky cries and nasty coughs! Today I am going to give you the 411 on baby colds and how we manage to make it through the few rough days.

  • check
    Detox baths- First thing first scrub those little humans! I like to do 1/4 epsom salt, honest lavender bubble bath and to make it fun for them with a water color tablet. I then let them soak and play. 
  • check
    Get out the Boogers- After the bath I saline spray and Boogie sucker their noses. Yup you heard me right! So gross but so worth it. I use the Nose Frieda. I have bought so many and this is the only one that seems to get a good suction.  
  • check
    Get Cozy- I lotion them up with dreamy lavender also by Honest and we snuggle back in our favorite pjs. Our all time favorite movie is Sing! While their watching, I clean. I would love to burn it all and really kill those germs, but we unfortunately don't have that option so we wash, scrub and sanitize. There is nothing worse then the kids fighting a cold and mom & dad getting it right after.
  • check
    Medicine- I load them up on healthy green smoothies, zinc and vitamin C.  Along with their daily gummies, I give them immune gummies and I make some homemade probiotic gummies. Get the recipe on my Pinterest! Things we also use are  Tylenol, cold tablets, immune boosters
  • check
    Diffuse- I  fill our aromatherapy diffuser up with some cold fighting oils. There are so many wonderful ones but my favorites are frankincense, lavender and peppermint. It only takes a couple drops, so make sure you look up the correct amount that is safe for babies. 

The hardest part about colds is keeping the kids occupied and not letting them get too wild. Also sleep. Sleep always seems to be a huge problem. I let them nap when they want and try to prop their heads up after they fall asleep. Try not to fall out of your routines, and always remember that it will soon all pass and you will be back to normal.

    I totally hated it when my babies were sick. Great tips! The detox bath was the best way to give my kids relief. Great tips! I also would buy menthol bath wash for them.
