Top Must Haves in Your Cold/Flu Survival Kit for Infants and Toddlers

Omg! The cold and flu have officially arrived and my kids are definitely feeling the change.

Heaven was down a few days ago with some sort of virus that was going around at her school and it got to her so bad I had to take her to the doctor. Luckily, her long-lasting cough was something that they were able to prescribe some meds for but both of the girls got the flu shot just to be on the safe side. Also, Harmony is still not 100% but she's been recovering quickly with some over-the-counter medications and natural remedies.

Even though we all got the flu shot this year, I wanted to be prepared because last year everyone in my house still managed to get catch a really nasty cold. With Heaven in school and around other children, I know that I have to be extra prepared because what can start off as a simple cough or sneeze can quickly turn the entire house into some sickly zombies. Plus the on and off weather here in Atlanta isn't helping the cold/flu season since one day it's sunny with 70-degree weather then the next it is raining and 50 degrees.

Literally last year Heaven sneezed on me and my whole body folded like a cheap suit. I usually don't get sick that easily but my poor body felt every single chill and I had completely lost my appetite but it wasn't the flu. Thankfully the mommy tribe on Instagram gave me some really good advice which I am bringing with me for this cold and flu season!
