As I write this, I am fighting with the dreaded cold bug myself!

Here are some of our suggestions for this season!

The first to top our list is drug-free alternatives for kids!

Kids Relief and Xlear have developed kid-friendly, safe products that will provide a solution to your child’s most frustrating discomforts during cold & flu season.  Kids Relief has created a homeopathic line that will tackle all of your child’s symptoms during these trying months.  The company prides itself on natural products that provide fast-acting and effective relief all without the use of dyes or sugars.  Some of the widely used medications include the Cough & Cold Syrup and Flu Oral Liquid.


If that’s not enough, Xlear has produced Kids Xlear Nasal Spray, a tried and true formula  that will conquer even the worst sinus troubles.  What’s the magic ingredient?  The nasal spray is infused with xylitol, a plant-derived ingredient that helps to naturally draw moisture, keeping nasal passages cleaner than with just saline alone.  Xylitol, which also aids in dental hygiene, and those suffering with diabetes, is also a proven bacteria fighter!  Xylitol sprays have been shown to decrease incidence of ear infections and stimulate the body’s own natural nasal cleansing system. What I like best is that there is no harmful side effects!

I received samples and it is a relief to have them in the house!

The next product is a real must-have to keep in the house!


I love how easy it is to use! I love that children will not mind having their temperature taken with this product!

As we head into cold and flu season, take the stress out of caring for your little ones with the Exergen Smart Glow TemporalScanner™, ideal for parents who are caring for a sick child.

The TemporalScanner™ comes with four ways to make it even easier to take a temperature:


·      A softly illuminated display for easy reading in any light – perfect for checking the temperature of a sleeping infant in a darkened room

·      Beeping sound indicating scanning can be turned off or on to avoid waking a sleeping child

·      Automatically retains the last eight temperature readings for instant recall to check on fever progression

·      Ability to switch between Fahrenheit and Celsius modes

Made in the United States, the Exergen Smart Glow TemporalScanner™ is the number one preferred thermometer by both nurses and pediatricians, and is backed by more than 50 clinical studies proving its accuracy.


Sold in major retailers including Wal-Mart, Target, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Costco, Babies “R” Us, Toys “R” Us, Kroger and BJ’s, the Smart Glow thermometer’s suggested retail price is $49.99.

Pine Brothers throat drops have been a real necessity for me since the cold bug has hit! I like that they taste good and they also are effective! These are found in the cough drop isle, are not a cough drop.  There are no medicines or questionable ingredients in this  product.  Pine Brothers throat drops are all natural; glycerin is the active ingredient.  I like that they are soft in texture and they are great to take to work with me since they do not have any medicine in them. I also like that there is such a wide variety of different flavors. I tend to change on my favorite but this week it is the Wild Cherry Flavored!

They can be found at many locations near you! I know I always find them at Target and CVS. They are a must-have for the cold season and anytime!
