Disclosure: I was sent the following products for review. All opinions are 100% my own!
My children have a constant battle with the runny nose and chest cough. I make sure that my children are immunized as well as have a stock of medicine on hand. There are also two other must haves for this cold season which include a humidifier and thermometer.
Since we run our heater non-stop during these colder months, the air is very dry inside our home. It is imperative that we have a humidifier. The Filter Free Cool Mist Humidifier ($64.99) from Vick's is a fantastic option to battle the congestion and cough. I like that you have the option to use a scent pad that you just drop right in the unit. I need to get some more! It is really simple to use - open the unit and fill with water, close and then place on top of the base then turn the knob to the setting that you want the mist to come out. I like to set it about three quarters to the max because I really like seeing the mist coming out - seeing is believing type of argument. What's neat is that it automatically shuts off when empty so no worry about burning down the house or something else drastic. I run it all night and it's still running when I wake up to go to work. I can see the mist in the room so I know that the kids are breathing in misty air to help with their congestion. A wee bit less runny noses since I have been running this non-stop.
The Braun Forehead Thermometer ($51.99) is another must have. It arrived at the perfect moment because Mason was experiencing a fever during the night a few days after his immunizations and I ripped open the package during the wee hours of the night and hurriedly popped in the batteries and read the manual. You just turn it on, press down and swipe across your wee one's forehead until the reading beeps. This is an amazingly easy and accurate thermometer. I have used many and this is one that my children will actually let me use on them. Mason even has the swiping action down! No more zapping multiple times and estimating temperatures or using a rectal thermometer under the armpit - yes I did this in my early motherhood days. Pick this up asap!
