4 Tips to Help Your Little One Recover From a Cold/Flu Fast {Giveaway}

We are in the middle of the dreaded cold and flu season still and so many of our friends are sick right now. Prevention is always key but sometimes no matter what you do catching the cold/flu is inevitable! Is your little one sick right now? Here are 4 simple things you can do to help them stay comfortable and recover fast:

  • Get a humidifier for their room 

A stuffy or congested nose occurs when the tissues lining it become swollen. The swelling is due to inflamed blood vessels. Breathing in moist air can significantly help sooth the irritated tissue. Use a humidifier in your child’s room to help reduce congestion.  Don’t have one? Then take your little one to the bathroom, close the door, turn the hot water on the shower and allow it to run while you sit close to the tub. Breathing in the steam from the shower will help thin out any mucus and also reduce inflammation.

  • Use a Nasal Aspirator

Use a Nasal Aspirator or snotsucker to gently remove mucus from their nose. It may sound gross but it is actually very hygienic and safe. I have used it many times and it really provides fast relief for them. These are great with really young babies who don’t know how to blow their own nose yet.

  • Use a nasal saline spray

Just a few drops of a saline solution in each nostril will help clear and moisturize nasal passages. You can find these at your local drug store or you can even make it yourself as well.  These saline solutions also help thining the mucus, which in turn will help decrease the inflammation of their blood vessels.

  • Keep them Hydrated

Keep your little one hydrated with water, tea, soup and natural juices. If they are younger then ensure you are breastfeeding them often or offering enough water. Hydration is very important when you are sick, staying hydrated helps thinning the mucus, reducing pressure in their sinuses and pushing the fluids out of their nose.

Finally, don’t forget to get the flu vaccine, prevention is key! You can get your vaccination at your local Shoppers Drug Mart Pharmacy.

    I’m a firm believer in washing your hands often and in getting your flu shot every year now that I’m one of the old folk ;-). If I do happen to catch a cough or a cold, then it’s lots of rest, lots of fluids, often a throat soothing tea and mainly soups. Tissues close by and I’m good in a couple of days. 🙂

    If I even start a sore throat, I rasp ( finely grate) fresh ginger, mix with a little honey, lemon juice and mix in a little citric acid as a perservative. I keep a small jar always made up so therefore the acid. Take 1/2 – 3/4 tsp. It is strong ginger and will burn for a few minits. I snort ( or use neti pot) warm salt water with a little baking soda a few times that day .( dont swallow it like some people I know !). I also take echinacea tincture, vit c, vit d, before the ginger. Have not had flu or cold for years and years. Ginger usually stops cold with one dose, but if still have a bit of sore throat a few hrs later, take again. Must do immediately ,if you wake up in the night with the start of a sore throat, get up and take it .

    We just got over the worst flu we have had in over 20 years. Over Christmas 🙁 We were looking forward to it for months because our daughter, son in law and 3 year old grandson were flying home to spend the Holidays with us. We rested when we could, drank LOTS of ice water and tea and tried to keep our nutrition up with soups and fruit. I tried the Vicks on the the bottom of the feet with socks at night to help with coughing ( I was desperate ) I think it helped. Thank you for this Great Giveaway it would be nice to be prepared if something like this goes around again.

    Just a note to those using a misting humidifier with SPRING OR WELL WATER,if you have a gas stove or appliance, the mist will interfere with how the flame burns. Orange flames are bad news. The humidifiers that use a filter do not have the same effect.

    HOPEFULLY I dont jinx it, but I can’t even recall the last time I was too sick to work etc…. so maybe 8yrs? maybe longer as I’ve been at this job for 10yrs and I prob take 1-2 sick days in a year (I don’t include surgery in that as I was off for 4 months one time in those 10 yrs) I think I take enough vitamin C maybe. I make sure I wear a jacket when I go outside etc… I dress for the weather , not like a teen LOL

    My family was just down with a terrible cold and I knew it was coming a few days before when I felt the tickle in the back of my nose. As soon as I felt the tickle, I made a HUGE batch of chicken noodle soup and froze it in portions. My whole family lived off it while we were too sick to make large meals. It was a life saver, and I told myself to make sure to do that again!
