Your child has the flu. Now what?

Jan 23

It's happened. Despite your best defenses, your child has the flu. "Maybe it's just a 24-hour bug," you say. "Maybe I won't get it." First things first: if you aren't sick yet, try to save yourself. Just like they tell us before every flight, secure your own oxygen mask before assisting others.

 

Restorative Recipes

Two we love are Brad's Prevention Ginger-Herb Tonic from Bon Appetit and this Immune-Boosting Soup from Crunchy Radish.  And, if you're game, good old-fashioned grape juice (thanks mom.me!)

 

Keep your kiddos home and get as much sleep as possible, which leads us to...

 

Rest is Best

Let's focus on your babe and our mantra: rest is best. As you may or may not know, TempTraq lets your little one rest undisturbed while allowing you to continuously monitor his or her temperature from your phone. Peace for them and peace of mind for you. Perfect.

 

Remember, proper application of the TempTraq patch is key for accurate monitoring, so revisit our Finding the Right Thermometer Blog Post for step-by-step instructions.

 

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate

When you're depleted, your body has a harder time defending itself, Water, sports drinks, and Pedialyte for your little one can help.

 

Disinfect

This may seems obvious, but norovirus demands the big guns. The CDC recommends a chlorine bleach solution with a concentration of 5–25 tablespoons of household bleach [5.25%] per gallon of water. Be sure to get remote controls, door knobs, cell phones, light switches — everything!

                

Mamas, this cold and flu season, may the odds be ever in your favor.
