I am beyond over cold and flu season. It seems like this has been the year that we have gotten hit the worst. If it’s not me (thanks pregnancy immune system, you rock), it’s Mason, if it’s not Mason it’s B.
Baby3 will be born at the end of cold and flu season and that makes me so nervous. I’ve discussed quite a few times how Mason had RSV the first week of his life and it was just awful. We were at the doctors office every day it seemed like and I do not want to go through that again with this baby.
So it’s important that we keep everyone healthy especially Mason who is going to have some trouble understanding boundaries with his baby sister i.e don’t cough in her face, don’t kiss her lips etc.
To be honest when it comes to myself or Mason being sick I don’t often go to the doctor to get antibiotics or even give medicine. I’m a strong believer in that it’s better to let your body fight it naturally so that you build up a great immune system, most of the time I’m able to adhere to that philosophy but sometimes I do need some help especially when it comes to the comfort of Mason.
When choosing a medicine to give him I want it to be as natural as possible and so does B which is why when we need too we turn to Little Remedies. Little Remedies products have exactly what they need to have in order to make your little one feel better and nothing more.

- Wash hands frequently
- Wiping down the grocery cart when we go to the grocery store.
- Covering your mouth when you cough or sneeze with your elbow (still working on this with Mason).
- Daily Multi-Vitamin as well as extra Vitamin C
